carved and gutted hollow
only has to fake a smile for
OHMAN! You are tearing my heart out! and making me smile at your mad skills.
J, I figured out what it is that is causing all of this madness–it’s the month. I’m pelted with metaphors everywhere I turn.
very cute and clever!
Thank you, Scotti! Nice to meet you
holy cow this zings!!!
poignant as hell, yet funny
Just sitting here overcome. You are gifted to be able to do that with so few words. You do that to me often! You’re like the poetry jedi…light saber packed with letters grouping wild…
Thank You and Cheers!
Jedi??? Ohh I am lovin’ it, Bliss. You are too funny! Thank you
It’s easier to be a jack o’lantern than it is to be Cinderella. I love this cinquain! Kind of makes me want to know what words go through the pumpkin’s mind during the carving …
LOL, if he had a mind, I bet the words “oh shit” might be a good guess.
Bet you’re right about that!
Hmmm. Now that’s a great prompt, Annmarie:)
Awesome, Danielle. Oh to be the Pumpkin, whose forced smile only needs to last until the morning light! …
…wherein he is smashed and ground and discarded or turned into baby food for pumpkin pie filling.
Oh yes–the pie! My favorite–warm, with vanilla ice cream. YUM.
Pumpkin envy indeed! Great job on this – and puts pumpkins in a whole new light.
A whole new light;) Pun intended?;) Thanks, Falc! Happy Halloween!
The title made me cackle. ^_^ Very cute!
“carved and gutted hollow”
This was very Boo worthy and it alternately creeped me out and made me smile.
“Boo worthy makes me very happy,” in a devilish sort of way, Val. Thank you:)
wow!! really cool metaphor!
i love love love your header..
Thanks Shraddha! That’s the front of my home, actually from last year. I really neglected my gardening this year, so no coleus:(
I finally remembered to look up the word ‘cinquain’! Had no idea they existed and am VERY excited to learn this. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! Cheers and Namaste.
Bliss, they are loads of fun to write! This one is kind of sub-par though–I don’t like the “for” dangling off the end there. But it was fun to write anyway:)
Okay. I’ve got my rule book out and on page 325 it specifically states that You are not allowed ever to refer to Your work as ‘sub-par’!!! Don’t make me come over there!
Ha! But a visit would be FUN!!!!
Awesome, you say so much in so few lines, and get the message through unmistakably.
So glad to see you again, Mark–and I see you’re now on WP! I’ll be stopping in….
This rocks! Kinda makes me wish I’d carved a pumpkin this year..
We didn’t carve any this year either, Lisa. Good thing or I would have been haunted by my own poem. Yikes:)
… and from there on in remains delighted?
This is true, (and hilarious), however, after one night of faking it, the jack-o-lantern usually tends to go rotten!
Yep, they sure do, Azfree. Faking takes a lot out of you!
