Fall


Faithful worshippers turn hopeful faces towards the sun. Heralds of autumn, they stand immobile while the flock congregates and feasts until beauty fades then disappears. Necks bend not in sorrow, but in promise.

"We want you to give it back to us in your own words, using your own subject matter.  Describe something that is three different things at the same time.  Oh, and do it in 33 words."

I'm hoping you can guess what I'm describing.

I think I know what you're writing about but I don't want to say and possibly ruin the fun for others. Well done!

Nice. It makes us think. Sunflowers with a flock of migrating geese? 'Until beauty fades then disappears.' Nice line.

How beautifully you've described fall. I like that the necks bend in promise instead of sorrow, since this season usually feel so melancholy for me.
