“Autumn” Poem of the Day (2022)


By Ashley O’Hare

Crunchy fallen leaves.

A piping mug of cider.

A candy corn stomach ache.

Ample apples littering the orchard floor—

My little slice of heaven.

Warm sweater hugs.

Travel cups of hot chocolate.

Let’s turn on Charlie Brown

And sit on the plush carpet.

Puppies in costumes.

Glowing pumpkins on the driveway

Idyllically illuminating the path

To the front door for treats.

The one time of year

When we expect to be tricked.

We leave the house with guards up

Only to be presented with lollipops.
