The Amazing Pumpkin Carve, which I described in The Amazing Pumpkin Carve 2019, part 1, has come and gone. Omigosh, those huge sculpted pumpkins!  :- D

It was an honor, indeed, to have had a small part in the success of this big annual event. The Hopewell Valley Arts Council, who ran it, generously allowed me to place ten of my micro-poem signs around the fairgrounds for the five-day duration of the fall festival’s run.

Here are some photos of my signs. I hope you enjoy them!

The Amazing Pumpkin Carve 2019, part 1

Earlier this month, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council ran its 5th-annual Amazing Pumpkin Carve, a local fall festival in Central New Jersey featuring 40 massive pumpkins imaginatively sculpted and lit. These pumpkins truly looked amazing, by day . . .

New this year, the event also included a little poetry — or, to be precise, a lot of little poems. Dotting the fairgrounds on yard signs, ten of my haiku and senryu were on display for the enjoyment of visitors.

Here are the signs, without their stands. (Pumpkin-colored cat not included.)

Poem signs . . . and a cat!
