The temperature was 84 degrees the other morning so I’m pretty sure that was Fall. Maybe? It’s still my favorite season even if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
This year, I’m getting in the Fall spirit with a contest to spark creativity by my writing buddy, Kaitlyn Sanchez. I’m a judge too, but am told I can play along as well ’cause y’all know I can’t resist a reason to write. Check out all the rules here so you can enter too. You have until the 11th.
The image I chose from the many gorgeous ones listed:
Some people say
many-petaled face follows the sun—
will face each other
when skies are grey
to share their energy.
I don’t know if that’s true. But
I do know
if my eyes are grey
I can press my face to yours
nose to nose kiss
forehead to forehead
and your sunshine
and warm delight
in the world lifts
my face from the shadows.
Sunflowers–and kiddo snuggles–are the best.
I hope to see your entry too. Good luck!
