When The Moon Turns Orange – Prose & A Poem

William-Adolphe BouguereauOctober has always been my favorite month.  Followed by March.  Growing up, in New Orleans, those two months sandwiched in the only cool/cold months of the year.  Usually, too,  by October some Hurricane system had either hit the city or brought gusty winds that blew summer right out.  A somewhat safe period of time arrives in October…and there will be harvests and festivals.

When The Moon Turns Orange

I love the crispness of October
watching the leaves turn gold
and orange
caught in the wind.
Sometimes
even the moon turns orange
and the stars dance golden
across the sky.
