It’s the first of the month and you know what that means! Poets, choose your own syllabic poetry form, theme, words, images, etc. It’s up to you! So I chose to do an Acrostic Poem September.

Summer is almost gone
Evidence of Autumn on its way.
Plethora of leaves begin to fall
Trees change colours standing tall
Embers from bonfires fly
Monsters prepare for Halloween
Beasts and witches , best you’ve seen.
Evenings start to draw in
Renewal, harvest feasts with kin.

    First it was too much sun crisping the leaves… but then the chestnut and willow leaves are generally the first to fall anyway. Almost time for the rake and not quite ready to put the lawn mower away!

    Cheers to Autumn!!

    Love this Willow. What a great idea. Acrostic must give that a go sometime. ❤ x
