Fall 2016


Not the shorter days,

nor the longer nights,

not the fallen leaves,

nor the birds flight,

I know it’s fall

because of the overwhelming pumpkin sights.

Bagels and lattes,

teas and muffins,

pies and cakes,

all are pumpkin.

Scarecrow vests,

Potpourris and other decorative melanges,

Flowers and tree branches, candles and hats,

in 2016 even a presidential candidate is orange.

Traditionally in the fall

Shades of pumpkin-orange color our houses and store fronts.

The aroma of pumpkin-spice lingers inside coffee shops and markets

promising delights for all.

But in 2016 we have so much more

to be thankful for:

lazy afternoons by the fireplace,

comfortable weather for long walks,

and intriguing presidential debates

where it seems a pumpkin talks.
