Autumn Falling


What else is there to say

for a season that banks its gold in plain view,

pushed street-side, deep in color and crunch?

Hard labor is done, jackets shucked by mid-morning,

to pull treasure by teeth through the grass,

asking no payment for piled plenty,

but children’s run-and-leap laughter.

We are all students and romantics again in autumn.

Every gust brings wonder drifting down,

brighter for its brevity.

joining, at least for today,

in these daily prompts for November,

      Rebecca– you are so kind, and I am loving the writing you’ve been doing yourself! I love a good prompt– helps me put my writing feet on the floor in the morning. 🙂
