Closing my eyes and smelling the crisp, cool air.

Opening them and witnessing the vibrant reds, oranges and yellows that top the trees.

Listening to the infectious laughter of children as they crunch through the leaves, jumping and twirling as the colors fall around them.

Feeling the breeze brush against my face, bringing with it the scent of hay, and freshly pressed apple cider.

Meandering through a maze of corn that stretches far beyond my height.

Pausing at the edge of a giant orange carpet of pumpkins, just waiting to be cut from the vine.

Blissful enjoyment.

*I wrote this post as a memoir prompt from Write on Edge. The task was to conjure something you like, ie write about it without actually saying what you're writing about. Oh, and it had to be under 100 words. I used 97. :)
