October in the South














Today's post is a twofer:
My Poetic Asides poem prompt was to write a poem about October and for NaBloPoMo it's also my between post: Between Summer and Winter..

October in the South

October has blanketed the South
with burnt orange, magenta, and golden
leaves.


Autumn is in the air…
October is what I now
wear.


October has blanketed the South
with warm colors of Fall.


Autumn breezes gently blow…
October hand I now hold.

Lol, the complete opposite to my poem about Spring (on the other side of the world) which I've submitted for week 53. I enjoyed the warmth and imagery of your poem. Beautifully written.
You can see mine here :)
