Pumpkin Head

Pumpkin Head

This morning I am asking again, is there anything in me today?

Anything to give? Anything worth giving?

Can I come back to the keyboard and type words that people might see?

I feel empty, dry as a bone.

I feel like one of those pumpkins whose insides get scooped out.

And then children carve a face in the empty pumpkin shell,

put a candle inside,

and call it a Jack O’Lantern.

Yep, that's how I feel today.

Suddenly it occurs,

Wow, that’s actually a beautiful symbol.

The pumpkin head whose personal mind has been removed

and replaced by spacious light?

Whose smiley face illuminates the night?



  1. WoW I am in Jamaica NY!!!
    i think?

    Count How Enlightening! OMG
    That would be a great ceremony...
    Get a Pumpkin, pretend it's my mental
    mush and scoop de doop!
    Love it!
    You are so creative.

  2. Yeah that is cool CD. I so often feel like I'm on the same resonating page, but the past few days I have felt deeply the other Halloween stuff in and around me, I trust my sorrow will unmask what's required and carve me into a pumpkin head soon enough...thank you, I appreciate the lighted smile and the giggle I've recieved here.

  3. I'm a follower of the calendar. I've been studying the Mayan culture since May. I dreamed of pumpkins last night. On Sept 22nd I had a dream of a great lion. Thought I'd share.
