    “Mirror, Mirror”

    E says pumpkin, and I think latte.
    She says cider, and I think donut.
    Who looks better in her apple-colored cords?

    An apple pie is
    A perfect marriage of sweet and spice,
    A nostalgic expression of everything nice.

    Leaves the shades of apple skins
    melt into the earth, emit
    the smell of gold and dirt and pine.

    “Candy Corn Haiku”

    Orange and white – black too
    Your grainy sugar so good
    Bite and eyes roll back

    Salutations to Autumn!
    Juice an apple in a cup,
    Add some cinnamon and drink it up!

    Treat–or Trick? (a haiku)

    Small box of raisins
    In my Halloween pumpkin:
    Sadistic neighbor.

    Orange wrapper pealed back to reveal
    peanut butter embraced by chocolate,
    the ambrosia of American life.

    Candy Corn

    We pluck it from plastic bins, each caramelized kernel
    a sugary seed we plant, praying those lush, summer
    stalks will spring up, just for a moment, inside us.

    Dear caramel crunch,
    thanks a bunch,
    You really make the sweetest lunch.

    driving home the longest way possible
    through the city park; dazzled by the trees
    stolen fire from the sun

    You and I can avoid Autumn by our summer love
    we laugh, intertwined, pumpkin pie in our mouths
    crust crumbling too quick – like the harsh October dusk.

    Note: my above poem is entitled, “As Easy As Pie”.

    “Fall Request”

    pumpkin flavored coffee cannot exist,
    unless there are
    candy corn flavored cupcakes.

    “Semper Fi”

    There is nothing sweeter
    Than when you and I
    Bake a delicious apple pie

    What I love most,
    Chocolate and peanut butter,
    Is never having to decide.

    Crisp apple gush of
    sweet juice and love
    for days long past

    Another Kind of Gift

    In late fall the bruise-colored sky
    bellies down almost to your eyes.
    The winds like horns blow change.

    Bakes apple treats–the taste of family
    gathered on occasion, to meet, greet,
    and sample sweet slices of life.

    I have eaten the Halloween candy that was in the refrigerator
    and which you were probably saving for trick or treaters.
    Forgive me, the Snickers were so sweet and cold.

    Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie,
    I would certainly die,
    For a piece of pumpkin pie

    No pumpkin, candy, apple treat
    Tastes as sickeningly sweet
    As the brain’s delicious meat

    “Carmel Apple Spice”

    Drinking apple pie
    washes away the wet chill
    of long Autumn nights.

    Maple lava on hotcakes,
    now surrounding my eggs.
    Pour some on me, my bacon begs.
