AUTUMN IN GEORGIA

Catch Fall’s foliage Brasstown Bald — Highest peak for colorful leaves. Red squirrel’s cache of acorns, seeds, pine cones, bird eggs in felled log sleeve. Serve up Helen’s Oktoberfest in Alpine Helen-White county with brats and beer, cool weather dressed, polkas and Ein Prosit bounty. The down-home fun, my southern town, relieved of heat, I hope for snow. Meanwhile In Autumn hues, I drown, warmed by an orange pumpkin’s glow. 9/13/2020 Brian Strand’s COMPLETELY YOUR CHOICE (8) any form any theme Poetry Contest

Congratulations y'all! This was just delightful and spoke so eloquently of fall in the south! We lived in GA for a short time, in the fall, and your images are perfect. I also have a grandmother from Georgia - one of the first women at UGA. Hope all is well.

A great portrayal of autumn; its abundance and beauty!! I really like the image in which I see the speaker 'drown in orange pumpkin's glow'. Congratulations on your 1st place win, Kim!!

Thank you, Gershon! They say the 50th anniversary of this festival is postponed until next year but there are smaller celebrations meanwhile. Thank you, friend!

so many exciting vistas in your poem. I used to love beer but have been advised to stick to a miserly small glass of red wine. Oh well, life goes on. ~~
