Dreams of pumpkins

Dreams of Pumpkins
A field of pumpkins warmly glows
With cheerful orange tones
Not just round but many shapes
All ready to come home with us.
Eager hands pick a little one
or a gigantic orb
To set on porch or table
Leading us to Halloween,
Then Thanksgiving ,
and on to the Holy Holiday.
                    Poem by Terra Hangen, that's me

Dear Terra, What an amusing sight this field of pumpkins makes. I love Pumpkin soup, its warm, orange glow being so reminiscent of the season.

And, what a fun poem!

Terra this is such a lovely poem, it has been raining here today and even though it is Spring in Australia it was a pumpkin soup day!

Thank you for visiting and joining my blog today and the lovely words you left. Your book looks wonderful! My book is Called Princess Sofia and the Invitation due to be released on the 11th Jan 2011. The book is about how an invitation can transform any little girl into true Princesses.

Terra- Your poem about the pumpkins really lets me envision that vivid orange autumn bounty! Thanks for your visit tonight. I am so thrilled about finding that goat cart and thinking about all I can do to decorate with it. :-)

No matter how old I get, it's still exciting to see a pumpkin patch each Autumn! Such a pretty photo and nice poem. A cheerful way to start my day!
