perils with writing and whatnot
This writing prompt is from Writing.Com.
Autumn is here in all its glory. Because it has just arrived, much of the foliage still has its green leaves. Still, the green looks weary and sunburned by so many days in the bright sunlight. A few leaves are starting to change color, showing off yellows, oranges and browns.
Many of the flowers are gone and the pods from them have fallen to the ground. The berries on the bushes are ripe. They add to the hues of colors that grace the land at this time of year.
Nightfall comes earlier now. By 6:30, dusk is on its way out and the blackness of night approaches fast. The sunset sits low in the heavens giving its last farewell. A breeze blows that wasn’t there when the sun was high in the sky. The upper branches of the trees sway gently as nocturnal critters come out of hiding.
As the light fades and darkness takes over, one can begin to see the stars come out. Of course, the planet of Mars is first, letting us know that it isn’t as far away as we may think. The constellations soon appear. There’s the Big Dipper, Orion’s Belt and The Archer, along with many others. The moonrise over the birch trees adds a host of light that eases our tenses as we try to unwind from the day.
This post isn’t as long as most of mine are. I like writing the poetic prose but I run out of wind quicker with them. I guess I’m just not much of a poet.
