What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?  Photographers, artists, poets: show us RISK.

Moon Walking for Dummies

Don’t worry about breaking a leg

when you’re walking on the moon.

If you stumble you will fall slowly,

the impact lessened

by the moon’s weak gravitational pull

and the soft, forgiving nature

of it’s cheesy goodness.

Daily Prompt: Mid-Season Replacement.

For many of us the seasons are changing, bouncing unpredictably between cold and warm. Are you glad to be moving into a new season, or wishing for one more week of the old? Photographers, artists, poets: show us SEASONS.

Autumn

It was rude, the way Autumn slammed the door in Summer’s face, weeks before the equinox arrived. There was no grace period this year. No overlap of seasons.

Hats and gloves had to be located and summer clothes, put into boxes. Spent flowers have been cut back, daffodil bulbs planted, hoses and mowers put away.

The bluebirds have been gone for a week. Flickers and starlings visit now, picking berries off the mountain ash. Murders of crows dot the stubbly fields.

Golden foliage everywhere.

Snow on the peak.

I’m ready for fall.
