Autumn is a second spring when every leaf's a flower.
- Albert Camus
Autumn seems to inspire many writers and artists. It is a time of year that flourishes with colors and cool breezes. For some, fall is a welcome time of year one that ushers in holidays, family and a whole slew of other cheerful occasions (football happens to me one for me). Fall can also bring with it a melancholy feeling or somber times. It signifies a dying of summer and all that was new. It’s a way of preparing us for the coming cold and sometimes harsh winter.
What does fall inspire in you? Do you think of rolling around in the leaves, laying upon your back while the cool wind whips at your flush cheeks? Do you huddle inside by the fire? What do you think of when the leaves change and the air begins to nip. We are eager to see what topic of autumn inspires to leap from your fingers to the keyboard.

Ah... divine. Scarborough Fair. A perennial favourite. Thanks Robert. I fear I'll have to post an older piece, since it's Spring in the Southern Hemisphere - I'm not feeling very Autumnal :)ReplyDelete
Good prompt, Robert! I am seeing / feeling autumn in the air here. I am sharing a poem that is pretty much factual about a walk in autumn.ReplyDelete

I feel inadequate here as my last autumn was so long ago in 1988. But I remember the feelings well.ReplyDelete
Thanks for this Robert!ReplyDelete

Great prompt Robert! I wrote about a memory.ReplyDelete
A wonderfully timed prompt Robert...thank you...:-) I wrote about what fall means to me in comparison to a human life.ReplyDelete
I wrote this acrostic a couple of weeks ago. I thought I'd link to it as it's relatively new. Thanks for the opportunity, Robert.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the chance to post a poem I wrote last week that catches my current feelings about fall.ReplyDelete
Fall is my FAVORITE time of the year...it's something about the autumn air that puts me at ease...ReplyDelete

I'm sending my poem from a very feeble, 'almost' hotel Wi-Fi connection. I'm on holiday in Mayo, West coast of Ireland.
Lovely poetry prompt subject!
