A celebration of the first month of Fall

Completely forgot when I posted to mention this is part of The Spooky Season Challenge by S. A. Crawford. You can find the challenge here:

Summer sun begins to fade

And the air begins to chill

A spark grows deep inside of me

It’s my favorite time of the year!


Days grow shorter and nights longer

Leaves turn from green to gold

Crisp leaves crunch under booted feet

Dew hangs on grass and trees


Ghosts and pumpkins are on the porch

Cobwebs, scarecrows make a spooky host

Witches and pirates roam the streets

It's time to ask for tricks or treats


Walking silently through the night

The shadows grow so dark

A frantic chill runs up my spine

I celebrate - it’s spooky time!
