Autumn 8

Thursday, 30 October 2008 15:54:40

So here goes:

brown on one side
green on the other
tree in autumn

doesn't quite do it, does it?  I need the notion of cooking, or suntanning.

half-cooked: brown one side
still green the other
lone tree in autumn

is better.  Is cooked the best word?  Grilled?  Tanned?
And perhaps I can extend the middle line to the expected seven. I know it doesn't matter but it's good exercise for my brain.
