A prompt from Jennifer Nichol wells today is Autumn Press here to read and join in.
Today I cheat a bit as this just fits the theme, I hope it is allowed as I loved writing this.
Autumn fruits and winter boots, wrapping up for the day,
Cold noses on the children, their cheeks glow as they play.
Reddend skies apple pies, climbing fences made of wire,
Warming stews and evening news tucked up by the fire.
Halloween, bonfire night, toffee apples on their sticks,
Burning smelly candles right down to their wicks.
Warming bubbles soothe the bones
reading stories, haunting tomes.
Fond memories seep inside my head,
of windy nights wrapped up in bed.
We put away flimsy dresses
tie up loose flowing tresses
Say farewell to summer
the honey and the Bee,
That’s what Autumn,
conjures up for me.
A recycled poem for the prompt first written a month ago but I thought it deserved a second shot… What do you think? I’d love to read your response.
