Free Write Friday #29: Fall Word Bank

on September 6, 2013

free-write-friday-kellie-elmoreWelcome to Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday! New here? Read the intro. Everyone else, let’s get started.

Here is your FWF prompt:

foliage – amber – wicker – aroma – sweater – cocoa

You may use as little as one word or all of them if you choose. Have fun!

‘Til the Last One Falls


Foliage changes color
Plushest green to amber
Hanging onto life
‘Til last leaves fall

The wicker rocker creaks
As aromas lazily drift
Tickling each nostril
‘Til stars at twilight call

Crispness in the air
Hints a light sweater
Breaking the chill
‘Til warmth arrives

Sounds from behind
Break concentration
A steaming mug of cocoa
Embraces, revives

Smiles from within
Send a new kind of chill
Inside and outside
‘Til nighttime calls

Foliage changes color
Plushest green to amber
Hanging onto life
‘Til the last one falls

    Sharla I loved this! The flow and the emotion of hanging on ’till the last one falls.’ Brilliant, how you captured the struggle but also the joy that can reside there too. This one touched me. Thank you!

  10. All the things I love about Fall. Sighhh. I cant wait to pull out my sweaters, build a fire and sip cocoa! As much as I love summer, I am really looking forward to nicer temps.
