Ode to October

Posted 10/27/2020 4:45pm by Shiloh Avery.


Ode to October.

Oh October, the light hanging low

Just brushing the brilliant colors in the trees,

Shadows long,

Sweatshirts in the mornings, sleeveless in the afternoon.

My gratitude builds with each ray of sunshine,

Even filtered through whimsical clouds. Bees are busy foraging the last of the blooms,

But my pantry is already stocked

And there’s time to just enjoy.

Porches were made for these days.

A slow down, a tucking in,

A satisfaction of a job near complete,

Of people fed.

This is October.
