Hallowing the pumpkin

FullSizeRender(1).jpgFirst the top
Then the inside
Scooped pulp
Seedy strands

Taped design
Creased folds
Pin pricked lines
Saw tooth cuts

Transformed
To décor
From gourd
Unadorned

Deliver us
From evil
All hallows eve
The communion
Of saints

Should we celebrate
You ask me

Putting on
The full armor
Holy spirit
Protect us
From darkness

Sacred and secular
Dark and
Triumphant
Truth in
Contrast

The punctured orb
Reveals light
In the dark

Pumpkin carved by Joan and Lana Mocco
