If you've written with me for awhile you've already done this creative exercise that allows us to engage our senses (and think outside the box) to describe a season, color, or action.
So, since autumn has officially arrived I'm ready to go outside, take a whiff of the air, listen to the sounds, and just think about what this wonderful season has to offer. I feel pretty darn creative!
Are you ready? Just fill in the blanks:
Fall looks like ____________.
It sounds like ___________.
It tastes like____________.
It feels like _____________.
Fall makes me want to _______.
I'll go first!
Fall looks like pumpkins
It sounds like falling leaves
It tastes like spiced cider
It feels like cornstalks
Fall makes me want to stay outside for as long as I can!
Fall looks like the gorgeous warm colors that are found in a brand new box of crayons
It sounds like crunchy leaves and lawnmowers that are taking their last pass at sleepy yards
It tastes like samples of cider at the busy farmers market
It feels like dried up cornstalks that surround me as I make my way through the traditional cornfield maze.
Fall makes me want to stay outside for as long as I can and wallow in the joy of my favorite season!
By the way, you will accidentally write a poem in the process of letting your senses run wild!
