Mother of six, wife of one. My son introduced me to poetry a year and half ago and my oldest daughter and I share a love for art. I enjoy horses and spend much of my spare time at the barn. As a family we are heavily involved with community theatre, my husband was in drag recently in "Nunsense Amen".
Oh, pretentious October,
Trees impress with reds and golds
Stealthy November grasps hold
Strength, life deteriorate
Carpet ablaze under foot
Cold, wet, fading, decaying
Seeping into mother earth
Slowly gaining dignity
Restoration is at hand
Easter's promise unfolding

Margaret has generously offered the real toads carte blanche with her photographic images but please remember to acknowledge the name of the artist if you upload one to your blog.
There are many beautiful pictures to be found on her various blogs, and I had a hard time selecting just two to feature here today.

The Sunday Challenge is posted on Saturday at noon CST to allow extra time for the creative process, so please do not link up old work which kind of fits the challenge at a push. I will only respond to poetry written specifically for this prompt: this is in the spirit of the Real Toads project to create opportunities for poets to be newly inspired.
