Second Place “Cheers to 10 Years Ultra Short” Competition.


Some changes gladly never change.

This is my entry for the 100-word competiton.

Breezes usher in on an orchestrated serenade of autumn. It enters cool and sedated, as subtle as the high notes of a summer song. Where once the raucous of beach-laughter and jubilant screams blended with crashing surf, they now trail off, dissipating into the scent of cozy fireplace bellows.

I sit, chin on knees, and watch as the leaves’ brilliant folly comes alive. Colors held and hidden away from the heat, spring forth as vibrant and playful as the lights dotting each spoke of a harvest fair Ferris Wheel. And the laughter and the screams return to ignite my soul.
