Personification - the attribution of human nature or character to animals, things, or abstractions.
Dearest Toads, I regret to inform you that the wind does not really whisper, flowers do not really dance, and the sun never, ever smiles. These are examples of personification, a favorite literary device of poets since dirt was young. Through personification, we can give verses and a voice to an animal, feelings to a toothbrush, or even physical characteristics to a feeling.

Since this is the first day of October (a witchy fun month), let's throw some personification her way. Personify October in any way you choose. Just keep it to 53 words or less.
I aced the word count! For once! Yayyyy!
Why 53? Here's 30. I wish I had stopped my car to take a photo of the surreal scene.
Can't believe I got 53 words on the nose! That never happens.
I managed to squeeze out a few words. Thanks, MZ.
Short and sweet. My favorite way to write poetry. Thanks!
A 53 to slip in before this weekend's 55. And I even came in under--that's a first. Thanks for the challenge MZ.
Hey, I've been gone chasing words for ages, but finally caught a few. It's good to be back! Thanks for the writing suggestion Mama Z.
53 for you on the dot.
Now I better go and tell October to stop talking, or I'll get him some therapy!
I've had the autumn blahs today, so this is a perfect prompt!
A very clever prompt, MZ. Thanks. k.
Just found your blog through the talented Magaly - what an awesome way to start my October!
I got 50 words, though further editing might get me to 53. We'll see. I can't decide whether I'm happy with it or not.
Thanks for the inspiration!
just finished mine...tapped out at 56 words.
this was fun, and october is my fave month...
can't wait to see what you other toads came up with! :)
I am late and over wordy...forgive me Mama Zen. :)
Thank you for the challenge, MZ! That was fun!
It's rather primitive but I'm in with 53 exactly.
Thanks for your wonderful prompts.
late and sad.
What a great challenge for October!
