Fall Flair #OctPoWriMo

We are halfway through the month now and I am, surprisingly, keeping up with little trouble. I can’t say that all of my posts were great, necessarily, but I’m writing regularly at least! Inspired by OctPoWriMo day 16 prompt blue.

Crisp, fresh smells the air,

Giving hint of the season new. 

Look yonder, over there,

Against the sky of blue,

Foliage change  shows fall flair.

Flowing Leaves #OctPoWriMo

For today’s prompt from OctPoWroMo – flowing – I decided to go with a Shadorma for a fall-like feel (which we are finally getting a taste of in my neck of the woods!).

Leaves flowing

Gracefully around

Wind blowing

Colors dance

Vivid tango exploding

Autumn’s arrival

Feeling Melancholy: a trimeric poem #OctPoWriMo

air gripped by a crisp dampness
the autumn raindrops fall melodically
perfect night for a lunt with the old hound
when I wore a younger man’s clothes

the autumn raindrops fall melodically
playing a song of sweet reminisce
images flicker of days now long gone

perfect night for a lunt with the old hound
a windcap on my pipe, army field jacket on my back
the pair keeping tobacco and pipeman dry

when I wore a younger man’s clothes
that’s what I would be doing this hour
now an old man who only dreams of what might’ve been

Though I’ve bot looked, I doubt this goes with the prompt for today at OctPoWriMo. But I’m linking it anyway ;0)
