The corn maze…watch your step!

The sun hangs joyfully in the sky,
Clouds stay concealed alertly on stand-by.
Watch your step through the never-ending maze

Your safety may just be a delusional phase.

A dizzying task, to the left, to the right,
All you can ponder is fight or flight!
Moans around each turn trouble your heart.
Screams in the void cause a kickstart.

Beware of rustling as the wind grows harsher.
Something lurks in the stalks as you move farther.
Deeper and deeper you sink into ugly dread,
Fearing you’ll stumble upon unsightly bloodshed.

Your world has transformed into endless corn!
You have failed and fallen, feeling forlorn.
But lo and behold, a ladybug on a leaf
Bringing to your heart a flood of relief.

Her essence portrays hope that was buried.
Fright has dissolved, you no longer feel harried.
Those unsettling sounds don’t cause any chills
Compelling you to hightail it for the hills!

Should you muster up courage to return next year,
To this spooky season that brings about ghouls?
Or should you leave the shivers and fear
For the thrill-seekers and the reckless fools?

BOO!!!!! 👻🎃👻

P.S. Look closely at that second image above..do you see something lurking?

And if you’re so inclined, you can listen to me recite this fun poem below:

Last weekend we went to this fun corn maze, and then walked
around the pumpkin patch, picking up some pumpkins, and
admiring the beautiful horses, an adorable heifer,

cute little goats, and a friendly donkey.
Lots of fun things to do for the little ones, too.

Happy early Halloween and be safe out there…
you just never know what skulks around the bend.

Kissin’ in the Corn Maze

Last weekend, my husband and I went to a corn maze that our kids raved about. The maze is on four acres of land, and the design changes each year. It only took us 38 minutes to get through-record time, but we got lost in the beginning. A very strange and almost unsettling feeling, like being in the middle of a forest, trying to find your way out.
Needless to say, we found the exit, but the experience was so much fun. We ran into the same groups of people; everyone went in circles at some point. The middle two photos were taken from a platform overlooking the entire maze.
At the end, we walked around, enjoyed the country environment, but also felt a bit old, as little kids played in the corn box and on the hay stacks (weren’t our kids that young just yesterday?).
When we were ready to leave, we spotted the pumpkins, and since I love fall colors, I couldn’t leave without a photo of the vibrant gourdes. The other odd looking pumpkins are called “peanut pumpkins”-we’ve never seen these before; have you?
And yes, when we had a moment alone, in the midst of the maze, we stole a kiss.
