Poetry Friday: Variations on a Theme

Thanks to Jama at Jama’s Alphabet Soup for hosting Poetry Friday today.

Remember this? I wrote about 18 poems before life happened(the catch up of being gone two weeks). When Amy Souza invited us to create postcards for October, that photo came to mind.

And someone had mentioned something about talon stems. Thus, I came up with these three postcards which I mailed this week.

And speaking of postcards…soon, very soon, I will have an invite to create New Year Postcards. (Seems weird to be thinking of 2019)

  1. Oh I love the talons gripping–I have never thought of a pumpkin stem as talons, but now will always see it this way!

  2. Michelle Kogan says:

    I like them all too but am partial to your third, I’m convinced those are talons–great image too, thanks Jone!

  3. No tricks in the pumpkin patch, just glorious golden treats! 🙂

  4. Joyce Ray says:

    Jone, the photos are richly detailed. I can feel the rough stem and the ridges on the pumpkin. I love the last one, too!

    Jone, your pumpkin postcards were rich with color and delightful in thought. Would you like to offer Pumpkin Postcard #1 for my upcoming gallery, Abundant Autumn?

  6. Cool to see the different takes on one theme, Jone. I love the idea of harvesting gold!

  7. Gail Aldous says:

    Oooh! This is great! I especially like the
    personification and assonance in the 2nd stanza. I’m not sure what the last word in the 1st stanza is. Great imagery!

  8. Tabatha says:

    It does look like talons! Fresh take and cool project.

    I like the third one best, too. They are all fun, though! Ruth, thereisnosuchthingasagodforsakentown.blogspot.com

    Wonderful postcards, Jone! I think the third one is my favorite. 🙂
