Happy Halloween!

This is one of my first pieces created on Illustrator and drawn with an inexpensive and truly horrible pen tablet (which shall remain nameless). The poem is simple and one of the few I've written for children, and It deals with my favorite time of year (and my favorite subject for my seasonal poetry). Halloween is the only holiday I really enjoy, and I love the colors, sounds, smells, and textures of fall. Fall is so sweetly melancholy, reminding us gently of both the ephemeral nature of life and the equally ephemeral life in nature


Check out my book of poetry, Elementa. You can see the cover here:
