Roasting Chestnuts

roasting chestnuts –
smoke plumes rise though bare branches
scent and taste of fall

colored leaves
struggling with the wind

Writer’s Quote Wednesday

I am participating in Writer’s Quote Wednesday, a collaboration between and also on twitter #BeWow

Here is my entry for thus week. It sounds like Vonnegut was giving a talk and this must have been his opening line, crazy! And funny!

“I realize that some of you may have come in hopes of hearing tips on how to
become a professional writer. I say to you, “If you really want to hurt your
parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be a homosexual, the least you can
do is go into the arts. But do not use semicolons. They are transvestite
hermaphrodites, standing for absolutely nothing. All they do is show you’ve
been to college.”

Kurt Vonnegut
