Spice

This prompt comes from thinkwritten.com Write about flavors and tastes or a favorite spice of yours.

The wonderful thing about my favorite flavor is that it only happens part of the year, not even part of the year, a couple months out of the year. I hate when it’s gone, but the moment it’s put back on the shelves, I remember why I’m glad pumpkin only happens in the fall.

I can’t grow tired of the flavor, because as soon as I’ve had too much, it’s not there anymore. I miss It when it’s away. But there’s more than that. Pumpkin tastes like everything fall. I love the fall. Warm sweaters, crisp air, the color of leaves, bonfires, and hot chocolate. The list is long. And the flavor of pumpkin reminds me that it’s all temporary. Before long, the snow hits the ground, and after it warms up again, we’re so hot, we can’t wait for cooler temperatures. The cycle repeats again and again, and I look forward to it every single time..

I know it sounds cheesy to be like everyone else and love the fall and to love pumpkin, but there’s just something about it that makes me happy. Pumpkin is a flavor I learned to love as I got older, because I refused to try it when I was younger, but I appreciated it that much more, because I realized how much I missed out on. Just like the fall reminds us that everything is temporary, like those glorious days of summer. I don’t really know if that’s why I love the fall. I don’t really even know if my love for pumpkin is that deep, like I just suggested it was, or if it really does just taste good.
