Autumn/Fall Similes

Struggling to get your creative juices flowing?

Why not try your hand at writing a poem using some Autumn/Fall similes?

Samples:
The leaves are as orange as a pumpkin.
The weather is as crisp as fresh lettuce.
The scarecrows blow in the wind like big rag dolls.

Not sure where to start? Well...

First make a list of Autumn/Fall words. Examples might include the months of Autumn/Fall or descriptive words dealing with the sights and sounds of Autumn/Fall. Then create a sample list of simile comparisons.

Samples:
the air is as ……… as ………
the trees are as ……… as ……….
the leaves are as ……… as ………
the birds sound like ………………
the animal's coat is as ……… as ……...
the cider smells as ……… as ……

Go on... Have a go!

Maybe I'll give it a try when it starts to look and feel more like fall. Right now, it's still too green and warm.

Aint that the truth Chicago. Maybe we need to revisit this idea in 2-3 weeks' time when the leaves start changing? Temperatures lower than 70s and 80s would be helpful too...lol

OK, that'll work. We can revisit this post in a couple of weeks... Maybe just before the end of October?
