Lady October

Over in the Garden we’re writing about October
Lady October

She’s wrinkled and worn
Her beauty fading fast
She limps through the days
Energy waning
longer each night
of lost youth
under a hoarfrost blanket
Cold hands hiding her
warm heart


posting at d’Verse Poets Open Mic too

  1. She does have a chill now and then, especially farther north. Fortunately we are keeping her warm down here in Texas, we are still running in the 90F’s. Towards her end I help her by celebrating my BDay, just before her famous Halloween gala.
