Happiness in the Village

Picture prompt 1 — The villagers woke with the spirit of the holidays

Happiness in the Village

The geese woke the villagers on this crisp fall morning.

Honking all in a perfect V flying south the new sun on their wings.

The villagers woke with the spirit of the holidays.

One after another a plume of smoke curled up from the houses,

rising to meet the new fall day. 

Another day, another adventure awaited the children.

Laughter filled the paths to the school.

Some stopping to throw the new fallen leaves in the air,

watching them slowly flutter to the ground.

Stopping the group of children heard a noise,

out of the dewy morning grass Brambles the village kitten ran up to them.

Meow Meow she called to them to stay and play.

But they all continued to the school, as the bell rang.

Each child knew that the holidays were on the way.
