Flash 55 – Gangs of Gourds

~ click to make image biggerer ~

They got together in loose lines, seeming to join in a random way.

In truth, they had planned this meeting months ago when they were still blossoms on the vine.

They vowed that this year, instead of accepting their fates meekly and quietly, each of them would turn the carving knifes on the heartless humans.

  20. I love pumpkins. They are the prettiest of the gourds. What is a gourd anyway? Is it fruit? Vegetable? Oh dear, does it really matter?

  21. Heartless humans to be carved with knifes is a scary, but appealing thought. Great 55.

  22. Hi Nessa ~~ I am sparing one of those guys. (Like the good deed Sarah Palin did the the ONE turkey she spared while they were killing the rest of them right behind her.)

    I won him as a door prize with directions to carve him. I WILL NOT CARVE HIM. HE IS SPARED!
