For today's prompt, write an autumn poem. Pretty straight forward today, because yesterday was the first day of autumn. Write about the foliage, the hayrides, the lengthening evenings, the pumpkin-everything. Love it, hate it; fall is upon us (in the Northern hemisphere).
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at an Autumn Poem:
“falling for fall”
break out the mums & apple cider
as the sun sets sooner & sooner
mowing the lawn for not much longer
& will we trick or will we treat
as we harvest something to eat
waving farewell to summer's heat
beneath the full autumnal moon
that always seems to pass too soon
reflecting our fall seasonal swoon
