Falling into Autumn

Turkey in Battery Park, NY – 2009

The first day of Autumn is officially Friday, September 23 but in a state with perennial sunshine, I must forego the coloured leaves signal and use one of two marks to start the new season: the beginning of the school year or the beginning of the football season. This summer has been brutal. The heat was frightening, thunderstorms were even more so (not really complaining here), and I’ve done little writing. 

So, it is time for Fall, or the serious part of hurricane season. School has started for me and I’ve already drafted my fantasy football league, putting some much needed routine back in my life. Where writing is concerned, I’ve had a hard time finding time to pen anything because of added responsibilities. I am considering the November Poem A Day challenge but I will pass on NaNoWriMo this year. Busy, busy. 
I’ll leave you all with 3 (related and unrelated) Poems:
What is your favorite season? Why?

  1. Daniella,
    I don't believe I'm qualified to do a poem a day. The challenge shouldn't outweigh my ability for writing poetry. It's tempting but I'd better pass. Thanks for your encouragement. Good luck on all you are undertaking. Jim
