Autumn Offering..... By Judith A. Lawrence

I shall be Autumn
this Halloween,
with leaf draped skirt,
and folds of
boysenberry velvet wine
flowing to the ground.

Brown stained face,
eyes rimmed in gold,
nails dripping sunset,
a crown of twigs
to cover my head.

You may gather from me
the spring of my youth,
my summer of maturity,
and hold onto with me,
the solace of these days
of remembering
before the frost.

The words are as lovely as the picture you chose to accompany them. I like to think of being Autumn for Halloween--and not something like a zombie!

I can picture the folds of boysenberry velvet wine, wish I had a party dress like that!
