Warty Pumpkins

Putting My Feet In The Dirt September Writing Prompt#18- Polished to Perfection

Warty pumpkins

don’t need you to carve them or paint them  or make them perfect for Halloween.

They were born ready for Halloween.

Polished to perfection by the Sun  in a field full of dirt, covered with manure on the day they planted at the side of a highway with an abandoned cement factory in the  next field over and a row of abandoned  houses across the street-

warty pumpkins made their way into the world destined to be flawed and stocked next to smooth white pumpkins and full round golden orange pumpkins perched a thrones of clean straw with crepe paper bats and moons inviting you to join the fun this Halloween.

Would  you invite a Warty Pumpkin or maybe two Warty Pumpkins into you home?

    Would  you carve them up and make them scream ” Halloween? “

Or would you just let them be Warty Pumpkins in all of their Warty Glory?
