Thigh-High Boots and a Grin

Spring bloomed over the Maiden’s breast,
kissing flowers down fecund skin.

Summer felt the Mother’s ripening heat,
seasonally wild
between Full Moon frolicking and the dark of July.

Autumn met October wearing thigh-high boots
and a grin.
He drove into her warm gingerbread cottage…
their embrace quickening Halloween.

“Oh Winter,” moaned the Crone.

  12. Follow me!

    I know a place where wine is served
    Up on yonder hill
    Cobbled together several shacks
    Of course, it’s stable ~ just relax

    (Eclectic place, a bit bizarre
    Garage contains a half-in car)

    Vintage Madeira, best of the best
    Portugal’s claim to fame
    Aged for decades, complex, intense
    Much like this old white-haired dame!

  13. Thigh high boots always make me think of ZARDOZ.

    Also though, your poem reminds me of this witch. We had one in our living room when I was growing up.
