Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
an unhappy pumpkin

Pumpkin Blues

by mermaids

he sits on the stairs, wide frown in place
not enjoying life, trapped in his own space

a tiny chipmunk waves as she scurries by
the large orange being gives a big sigh

a squirrel chatters and pats his stem
her company arises a smile from him

he welcomes the friendship of a curious crow
his heart aflutter, this new friend makes him glow

the moon chuckles at the round orange sight
friends transform this lonely character's night

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
