Octo-Burr

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!
