She giveth offerings of raspberries and vines of gorgeous taste,
The senile year will make thee moan with inebriating bounty,

It’s time to stop seeing with our eyes!
Gay, white, black, or straight 
Peace is so hard to find, elusive; 
Cut off the head, don’t let ignorance breed;

Shouldn’t we all be done with hate?
It shouldn’t matter your sex or color

October bade to tune me for its heartache song.
Thirty-one days pelleted stressed pummeled rain.
How rude the tenth one to taunt with feuds weeks long.
No frisky wind wishes gentled October’s strain.

Burst of fireworks yet to come

their hollow eyes embarking for the light;

October is a pent up rage
A subtle breath and sharp exhale
He is a portent - of impending carnage
A forthcoming black storm's wail

A subtle breath and sharp exhale
As brazen hounds frighten all inside
A forthcoming black storm's wail
Stalks hollow and frozen eyed

To a Mother of Pearl Moon, brilliant disc at twilight 
And peeking through satin clouds at dusk 
Taking the place of setting burnt-orange Sun perfection 
The giver of life replaced by the finder of love.

Trust no one
Dark night when trust is being painted and betrayed,
When young men behaved like apes on the loose,
Deflowered by six-man gang on rampage,
Trusted and confidant pal turned to ape this day,

When young men behaved like apes on the loose,

A happy Halloween
Laughing children shuffle in the leaves
(they're dressed as ghosts and vampires).
Smiling people give out handfuls of candy;
young and old can  join in the fun.

It's a time of innocent pleasure...

The Wind of October

A whisper of frost on the breath of bright autumn
 On wings October flies in a whirlwind of sighs.
The wind shivers with cold - time’s messenger bold;
 Waking up from their naps mufflers, mittens – woolen caps.

October has come, where have you been?
It's time for both hello and goodbye.
