October on the Coast

The October moon plays peek a boo
behind ominous clouds,
casting eerie shadows
on charming coastal towns.
It's orange hue illuminates
landscapes down below,
where you can see candlelight
in many windows glow!

Along narrow streets and alleys
leaves swirl and spin,
while lingering townfolk scurry
seeking shelter from the wind!
You can hear the roar
of the ocean down the block,
as frothy waves crash
on slippery, clustered rocks.

Rows and rows of pumpkins
scattered in the fields,
dry corn husks sit idle
after harvest's yield!
buy some juicy apples
and cider at a stand,
or stroll along the shore
with a loved one hand in hand.

October conjures memories,
a delightful time to be,
a resident on the coast
with friends and family!
Heaven's brilliant handiwork
no man can replicate...
a season of great beauty
only God can orchestrate!
