Pumpkins & Macbeth

The last of the pumpkins
wait for curry or rot. Either way,
Earthy taste or compost: 
I check them daily in this hot weather.

Their orange and green has evaded black,
Their vine-twisted memory of Halloween glow has sustained. 
Tomorrow, puree and steam or boil and bubble, 
Autumn warms spring against charms of powerful trouble.

  1. I still have pumpkins, too! I have a couple of onion squash and some Crown Prince (jade outside, bright orange inside). Hoping to plant then Crown Prince seeds this week. Planted some onion squash last month and they did nothing. 😐
