October On Display

October's proliferation of bold colors are gloriously on display Trees crowned and wreathed with russet and bronze leaves Fruitful are the harvests of grains, bundled in golden sheaves It's the month when being outdoors invites everyone to play My heart sings praises to God, for His hand supplies the riches Cornucopias of gourds and apples for pies, already in the oven It's the sights and pungent aromas of October that I'm lovin' There's Halloween candy and broomsticks flying with witches It's the time of year to wear sweaters when winds are blowing Weep not for fallen leaves, for they will appear again in Spring along with the avian flocks, traveling South on fluttering wing before Winter's gelidity arrives, and suddenly it starts snowing. ~ ~ 10/2/2020 ~ ~ October Poetry Contest Sponsor: Regina McIntosh

Thank you so much, Jennifer. Where I live it really is the most mellow month of the year...blue skies and mild temperatures.

Thanks, John. After posting this yesterday, you're the only one to comment. Maybe there are too many October and Autumn contests currently running. I appreciate your support ;)
