Coming soon 
is Halloween 
 the stores are full 
of junk and stuff, 
a noxious dream
 for your house 
or for your yard, 
wherever you 
may want or need 
to make a statement, 
make a scene.

I am already starting to see a few leaves here and there on some trees change here in Montreal so it is coming indeed! Love the poem and photo. :) Oh, and October 27th is my birthday, quite close to Halloween! I will be 60 this year. :)

Ugh! Too soon! But we're on the verge of September and leaves around here are starting to change.

I just saw a sign at a garden store that they were going to have a special Halloween preview event on Sept 2nd. That seemed a little early to me but, I guess I'm not a retail guru.

Judy said...

Yup...our stores are starting to look like that.

William Kendall said...

Some stores here are already stocking for Christmas.

I'm not so fond of the Disney scarecrows, but those other guys are cute!

Karl Demetz said...

I like the cut-outs and the vivid colours !

Lovely collections for Halloween. Halloween has gotten popular in Japan but I can’t think of it when it’s still hot.

I will stop here though I’m in the mood for commenting. Concentration on the computer monitor for extended time makes me have a slight seasick like feeling. I’m not pessimistic about it, I know I only need self-control because time passes so quick when I use computer. Wish you a nice September.
