Photo finish Friday: “Ode from a deliquescing pumpkin

Ode from a deliquescing pumpkin

Ode from a deliquescing pumpkin

I was once a pumpkin:
Now I am a mess.
The party night is over
And I wait to deliquesce.

The treats have been handed out
Some to children too bold
Who think that a cigarette
Is not a sign you’re too old.

They came in hoards and cars
As if the end of time was near
From close by and far way
Some with the scent of beer.

I was once orange and in my prime
Round and succulent to behold.
But now I deliquesce
As I grow a little mold.

I will not make Thanksgiving
Which I hear is a special holiday
Where pumpkins become pie
And make taste buds say, “Yay!”

I hope you will remember me
As I slump into the earth.
Don’t think of me as too scary
But with a little mirth.

And next year at this time
Decorate one of my kin
And the season of the spooks
Can once again begin.

Photo finish Friday: “Jim’s where?”

"He went where?"

“He went where?”

Huck and Tom sat on a bridge fence overlooking a river. They were older now, and somewhat wiser, but still sometimes lost in the details of life.

“You think Jim would like to see this river?” Tom asked.

“I think he was a-sick of rivers after that adventure a few years back. I heard that when the raftin’ was all over, and the adventurin’ out in the Territories was done, ol’ Jim hitched himself up to politics and did right well up there in Washington.”

Tom thought about it for a moment. “How look he been there?”

“I hear it’s been about eight years.”

“Eight? Well, that might just be enough to make him mean.”

Photo finish Friday: “She came from…”

She came from beyond the light, from a place before light, before shadows, before there was a beginning and an end.

Photo finish Friday: “Reward”

Each flower is its own reward, especially to the inchworm making its way to the petals.
