October is now here, allowing for cooler weather and Halloween costumes. But for poets like me, the colors of autumn are inspirational. It took me a while to write this poem. It may be only a couple of stanzas, but this format, also known as the curtal sonnet made it a challenge to create a fall-like scenery. May the words of this poem relax you and keep you warm while you sit by the fire, as it cracks and crinkles, with a short chilling story before you. Just look for it under the “Poems/Halloween & Fall” tab.
