Miss October

The temps here have started
taking off their steamy attire for Fall.
It’s been a long Summer tease, but
we’re getting ready to crawl under the covers,
and snuggle-up through the night
with a calendar babe of color.

I hope it's getting cooler in GA than up here in MI, I was fishing today--in the rain--without rain gear for it was 85 degrees--that said, another good poem and winter will arrive.

She's been doing a fair amount of quiet weeping here, with occasional outbursts. Nice imagery, Pat.

I enjoyed this one... a celebration of summer's relentles heat vs. the cosy relief of snuggling under your blankie!

Pat pat pat come back!
i like the naked trees
and going undercover.
Hope all is well with you.

She sure is a classy babe with those brown red and yellow clothes she is removing in such a stately strip tease. Makes me want to linger and watch a little before we slip under those sparkling white sheets.

I simply adore the clever-word play that is displayed in all your poems I've read so far, Pat. You're too good to miss in this vast cyberworld so I'm going to provide my dear readers a link to you. :)
