October Plans... [October Contest]

October is a scary month
In more ways than one
It means the end of summer
For me, that means the fun

Endless raking leaves
Temps are dropping fast
Get everything winterized
Ready for Winter's blast

The streets are looking spooky
We got some fog last night
I've seen my grandkids costumes
They're some scary sights

October's almost over now
Halloween still to come
Hey kids, I take you "Treating"
Make sure you save me some!

LOL! Loved it! Great rhyme and cadence in this. We did get fog here also. I hate winter but that’s just my old bones talking. Thanks for a peppy read. ; )

Pegasus was a genius,
living within a suit of difference.
He liked what he was,
nodded in respect and
simply flew . . . away.

Just a little something for the October contest. Even though I can't win, [being one of the sponsors], I enjoy entering the contests. ~ Geezer.

That was a fun read a nice read.
I dread winter here in MA.
It makes it easy to understand the snowbirds though.
Later,

I really don't mind winter much, if I don't have to shovel snow or have car trouble. As long as I keep warm and the power doesn't go out, I'm good. Thanks for the read and comment.

Gee.
