If yesterday’s post was a poem writ in veggies, today’s is a full-throated  and deep-voiced  barrel-chested Pumpkin Song.

Of the 12 or 15 pumpkin pictures I took at the Farmers Market, I concentrated on the stems and tops.  Didn’t think about it.  Didn’t plan it.  Just did it and didn’t realize it until I downloaded  the pictures. If you want to play word association games and the word “pumpkin” gets lobbed at you, I think it’s a safe bet that you will fire back “Orange” or “Halloween” or even “Great” but I will wager that “Stem” doesn’t make the cut.

And finally, as a soft and graceful ending to this Pumpkin Song:

For the first day of Fall, an early morning visit to our local Farmers Market. Visual poetry in blazing color using vegetables as verbs.

Tomorrow: The pumpkins wrote poetry of their own.
