Autumn Weather

I love autumn, it's my favorite season. The weather turns from a humid, sizzling landscape to a cold collage of colors that don't feature green (not that I have a problem with green). It reminds me of beauty that comes from every stage of life, especially before our deepest dreams. Nature prepares for winter by feasting, giving, activity, and hue changes. We, as humans, never have a party that extensive for sleeping. Autumn also features my favorite day: Halloween.

What does this have to do with writing? Well, I could give you some bologna about most literary magazines opening their doors for a new publishing session as most take the summer off. Or I could tell you the coming season inspires poets like myself into a distorted frenzy of euphoria. When it comes down to it, I just love the season.

I guess this is my first post that doesn't have writing as a subject.

What is your favorite season?

Side-note: Three more of my poems have been accepted by Midwest Literary Magazine! I will let you know when they become available for viewing and pass along the link.


  1. Fall, definitely. I LOVE fall.

    Congrats on the poem acceptances!!

  2. Thank you very much for the congrats!

    Fall colors are going to start to peak here in a few weeks. You don't know how excited I am. We already had frost advisory here last night. Woohoo! Stop by anytime. :)
