>Writers Workshop: Ode to Fall

>Mama's Losin' It

Ode to Fall
Crisp, spicy scents in the air
Chilly mornings, warm afternoons
Hearth fires creating black swirls in the sky
Painting the world in hues of red, yellow, and gold extraordinaire.
Witches, goblins, and costume play
Back to school, sunflowers, mini scarecrows
Hands clasped in thankful togetherness over prayer
Dance classes and Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Football, tailgates, and warm apple pie
Christmas shopping, and visits with Claus
Pumpkin patch treasures, buckets filled to the brim
Days of harvest that fly right by.
Three cheers I give to the coming of Fall
Goodbye to sweet Summer, Not Yet to Jack Frost
These are just a few reasons why
You are the best season of all.

Prompt #5: 10 reasons why you’re glad it’s Fall. (okay, I went overboard…)
