Autumn writing prompt

How many more days?

Cool days, Cooler nights
Apples and Cider
Dusk comes so early
Turn on the lights
Hayrides and bonfires
Hot chocolate and s’mores
Football and tailgating
Blankets are desired
Pumpkins everywhere
Squirrels store their nuts
Leaves turn green to red
Get ready for a scare
A prelude to winter
with gray days and long nights
I prefer beaches and sunshine
How many days ’til summer?

  1. Are we there yet? haha
    Nice poem, Pamela.

  2. Far too many days, but I’m more of a spring person.

  3. Very cool. Brings back some fond memories of the mid west.

  4. This sounds like fun. Now if only I could think straight.

  5. OMG, I read this to the music of, My Favorite Things! I am so losing it. It wasn’t you, Pamela, it was all me. For a season that you hate, you sure have great words for it:>)

  6. Isn’t autumn beautiful? The pumpkin pies are what makes this season for me along with the gorgeous colors!
