By Kimber Annie

It peaked around the corner at me this morning

then like a friendly ghost

it hid.

The friendly part is my favorite.

The haunting part, not so much.

I did feel it.

It was there.

I know it’s coming back and it’s coming back to stay, at least for a few months any ways.

Some years,

actually most years

its full of the strongest emotional memories.

The friendly part is my favorite.

The haunting part, not so much.

Some years

actually most years,

I wish it could stay longer,

but I also understand why it can’t.

number 2 pencils

little hands

pink erasers

hot lunch

cool nights

corn fields

pumpkins

patch work quilts

faded flannels

recipe collecting

storing up plans

un-storing pilgrim decorations

red and green boldly arriving early to the festivities

scarecrows

front porch swings

weathered veins

late blooms

fresh memories

Autumn

seasons within a season

It peaked around the corner me this morning

then like a friendly ghost

it hid.

The friendly part is my favorite.

The haunting part, not so muc

  1. Hi! Can you fix where a word is left out in my poem?
    Opening line should read “ it peaked around the corner AT me” That same line towards the end is also missing the work AT.
    Thank you so much! It’s an honor to be in your journal.
