One Sentence Challenge #5: The Anticipation of Fall

Congratulations to Tamo over at https://tamo4u.wordpress.com/ for winning last week’s challenge, On a Forest Road

Wild, like a forest she kept loving me until on a forest road, I lost her, again.

As I’ve said every week, the point of a one sentence challenge is write the most perfectly written sentence that you are able. It is a challenge in brevity, clarity, and artistry. It pushes you to come up with the best you can write, without the added pressure of writing a story or novel of any sort. The prompt for this week is The Anticipation of Fall.

1st Attempt: The change of weather is on the wind, the leaves will soon shed their green skin and shine like the sunset, and then they will die, leave the bitters of winter.

2nd Attempt: The changing of the weather guard is commencing, the leaves will soon shed their green skins to shine like the sunset, and in the brief moment before leaf-death we will bask in the calm.

Final Attempt: The changing of the weather guard is commencing, the leaves will soon shed their green skin to shine like the sunset, and then they will die, leaving us only with the bitters of winter.

I hope you enjoyed my one sentence and the journey for it to become the best version of itself. Please leave a comment below with the best sentence you can make with the prompt “The Anticipation of Fall” for a chance for me to advertise you and your site on my blog!

  1. His spirit was dry, crumbling like the leaves beneath his horse’s feet; he wondered how he would find the strength to fight through the shortening days and the bleak winter that lay ahead.

  2. Hello! I just found your blog and can’t resist a challenge. “Fall” has so many meanings. I hope it’s ok that I took “the anticipation of fall” in a different direction:

    With my toes gripping the right angle of the platform, I hold my arms out wide and tilt.

    Thanks for this unique challenge!
