The Thursday Think Tank #73 - The Waning Days of Fall

It is the first Thursday of the month. Time for our photo prompt, # 73.  I for one am thankful, to turn the calendar to November. I might change my mind, when daylight savings is set in place. Spring forward and Fall back into shorter, darker days. I know not everyone has to reset their time yet still the days do get shorter as the seasons change.

I was snapping photos this week, thinking what would inspire you.  Take us on a different path if you will.  I know we have done something similar, but this is an up close look.  I like the variations of color and light.  I would love to read what it inspires in your poetic eye?

Our Monthly "Reflection" photo prompt is provided to us by Ella Wilson . We would like to thank Ella for her inspiring photos and for helping us out here at Poets United. If you would like to know more about Ella, see her other photos or read her poetry please visit the blog below:

If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.

There 3 simple rules:

1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.

2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.


  1. That's a lovely inspirational picture... thanks, Ella!

  2. Thank you Laurie, what do you think it is?
    I blurred my poem into more than one season. Funny, I never write till after it is posted. :D

  3. Curious about the photo, looks like someone spilled curry into a puddle :)

  4. I like the prompt... something steamy from me ~

  5. Poets United,

    Seeing autumn through the natural decline.


  6. Mine's something kind of off the wall :)

  7. i see waves lapping at the sand ~ i'll be around to visit everyone on Friday. thank you for a great prompt!

  8. An inspiring prompt in more ways than one — but I'm sorry, my first link was a mistake and takes you to my Poetry Pantry submission instead. The second one finds my response to this prompt.

  9. Beautiful photo. Leaves at the beach perhaps? Funny how I never think of fall leaves being near a beach. LOL We have been in our local mts this week and the fall leaves are lovely there so I wrote about that.

  10. Fall is now forever connected with writing for NaNoWriMo for me!
