Every Wednesday, Robert Lee Brewer shares a prompt and an example poem to get things started on the Poetic Asides blog. This week, write a fall poem.

For today’s prompt, write a fall poem. Since it’s the first day of autumn, I’m thinking of the season. However, other interpretations of fall are welcome as well: Falling in love, falling in line, falling for a joke, and/or falling down.

Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Fall Poem:

“pumpkins & flannels,” by Robert Lee Brewer

’tis the season of the mantel
with a pumpkin-scented candle
so stow away your summer sandals
& put on your autumn flannel
