55Flash Fiction Friday

October

If I wrote fifty-five words about you
fat round orange pumpkins
red grand old barn
dry earth spent hard

If I gave you what you wanted ~ told of your shameless beauty

Flaunted your colors

If I even forced loved ones to cooperate

...used false replicas to further my fall

Would you then become my 55?
~
Ok what are you waiting for? I know blogger sucks, but you can still write a 55!

"I can't believe how dumb all those New York tourists are," said Ignatious to his new wife while he showed her around his Inn. "Every year we clear that hay field, haul a bunch of pumpkins up from New Jersey, and those New Yorkers drive up here to admire them."

I'm close to age 55. Every time I see that number, I get depressed. (Only kidding.)

Love the colors in the pictures. Fall is here!
