The pale keening of cicadas
echoes in the sun's lingering hue
and on the horizon
smoke unfurls its wooded glory
through the glen.
Pumpkins crown the curling vines
in triumph,
waiting to be claimed
in greedy grasps
and turned like changeling goblins
after dark;
and this bright crush
of maize and barley
carves the crisp evening
and singes our eyes
in the fine glory of a psalm.
It's that time of year...

You're welcome! I had to comment. Your poems are always so moving. You truly know how to paint a picture with words in a unique but vivid way. Your words are full of emotion too. I thank you for sharing that talent here. It's always a pleasure. :heart:

I have a weakness for Halloween themed pieces and couldn't help myself to collect this since there is such inherent dedication to the subtlety. Keening, perfect. Also, your pumpkin description, perfect. Perfect.
