of costumes and bones and tasty drinks
of colors of leaves evolving in sync.
of death and life in equal balance
some crops are growing, others vanish.
the season of tripping and scraping your knees
as you scramble for stranger's candies.
dressing up or dressing down
ghosts and goblins dancing with demons
blending in with humans for a night of fun
before they have to return
for another year.
when seasonal drinks start pouring
in clementine colors,
and coffee starts
painting your day.
when hot chocolate is only
a few steps away.
