Isotopes (100WCGU week #15)

This is the first time I have attempted the 100 word challenge and, by chance, this week the bar has been lowered and I only have to write 50! Here they are – the prompt is … the Autumn leaves …


The Autumn leaves with a frigid, damp whoosh, and forgets to take most of its stuff with it. Dare I risk one more cut of the lawn – a lazy way to clear its detritus? If not, I know I face the annual battle of the rake versus the Autumn leaves.



I think it might sound better (i.e., less pretentious) if I substitute ‘its detritus’ with ‘Autumn’s confetti’.
