Happy Halloween

 Pumpkin  

The round, edible fruit of a trailing vine, pumpkins are a symbol of

fertility. Dead spirits are invoked by the pumpkin when faces are

carved into it, and it is lit from within. The spiral of life is represented

by the pumpkin; the harvest brings death, but the seeds bring birth.

 

From  my novel, The Memory Garden
