A Note from the Webmaster: It’s summertime, the glorious season of swimming, sunblock and sinking your teeth into a fat stack of books. Alas, it’s also the sad season when Writers Forum goes dark for two months. Never fear, dear reader, because for the next eight Mondays, Writers Forum will be featuring the Best of Member Monday. The top eight Member Monday pieces were determined by the number of views each piece received on our website. We’ll count them down beginning from #8 and ending with our #1 most viewed piece of the 2013-2014 Writers Forum year. Congratulations to the top eight! Capturing the #1 slot is a piece by…drumroll, please… Darbie Andrews!
Oh, the battle between Summer and Fall!
Lingering hot summer days fight Fall’s need to pounce away the heat.
Fall tries with occasional cool winds and puffy white clouds, but summer fights back.
The short cool moment stolen…a tease.
Shorts and sandals fill the streets again, but sweatshirts and socks are nearby.
It’s nature’s menopause, Fall versus Summer.
Hot, cold, hot cold.
It doesn’t end with a wallop.
It’s gradual and fun to watch.
Fall takes over every year and forces Summer to leave and cry for Spring.
We carve happy faces in pumpkins, celebrating freedom from the hot flashes!
