Carpe Diem #729 growing melons

I visited the overgrown hut of an old man who had gone into seclusion.

vine heavy with fruit

golden orange, streaked with green

anticipating harvest


her curls windblown
arms stretched around pumpkin

autumn glow

Pumpkinpatch (13)

tiny hands pull
wagon laden with pumpkins

kissed in autumn hue
