Now that the weather is getting cooler I began to think about the pumpkin patch up the street.


Sweet Homage


We humbly rest tucked under feathery green arms
Guarding the grounds of unwanted trespassers Ready to wrap our appendages tightly onto you

We grow slowly and silently on mother’s soil
Begging for the coolness that will soon come
To help us grow beyond belief

Rounded, hard, and variously sized are we displayed
Don’t run through our unmarked territory
We are highly seeded, intentions to be pied
