Today’s Prompt is: Your favourite Season
My favourite season is Autumn. I love the changing colours of the leaves. The chance to cook with ingredients freshly harvested from the fields and hedgerows. If better the chance to have a little fun at Halloween and bonfire night. I can almost taste that pumpkin pie and fire roasted jacket potato, with butter already!
I love the way the leaves turn gold.
As the autumn winds blow cold
Almost all which is green is browned
Then the leaves begin fluttering to the ground
The pumpkins swell in their mystic field
Farmers rejoiced, having harvested great yield
This means Halloween draws ever near
What a wonderful night of fun and fear
The autumnal woods just come alive
Every creature working hard to survive
Frantic squirrels storing those last few nuts
Preparing for the time when winter abuts
I drink in the last golden rays of autumn sun
Draped in a blanket remembering summer of fun
I juggle a few shiny conkers in the air
Smiling, knowing November will soon be here
The last hurrah of autumn is a flash of light
The 5th of November a wonderful bonfire night
As the fireworks explode in a colourful free for all.
I smile, yes the best season is the Autumn fall.
Have a great day!
