It is a happy place
To be
Where oranges become
Winking jack-o-lanterns
Like tiny pumpkins
Only much sweeter.

And it is even happier
To be
Where husbands become
Giggling companions
Like fairy tale princes
Only much better.

And it is happier still
To realize
Your husband became
The only one you’d ever
to carve
orange jack-o-lanterns with.

And he is
Unlike anyone else –
In the whole world.


  1. Yay! I planned on doing this Saturday with peppers! Oranges would smell better...I may need to rethink my plan :)

  2. Gasp! This is such a great idea!

    Becki, just so you know - if someone were to ask me who I find inspiring, you would come to mind immediately! :)

  3. This was 10 times more fun than I ever thought it would be! I think when you first told me of the idea my mouth dropped in bewilderment!! However after I gushed citrus orange all over my nice clothes I began having a riot of a good time!!!

    I love you my blossom.

  4. I think, personally, that SISTERS would be a good sort of person to carve an orange with. But...of course...that's just little old jealous me sitting here gazing at your glowing orange orbs with eyes sparkling with inspiration.

    I like your oranges.
