Not quite rhyming – slanted paint chips

This week’s challenge from Linda Kruschke is from the letter S. The definition of slant rhyme is long, so why not pop over to her blog to find out all about it?

The paint chip words and phrases you have to work with are wheat fields, raven, moonstone, foggy harbor, and brown-paper package. In celebration of my 35th wedding anniversary, I would like you to use three of these five paint chips in your poem. They can be part of a slant rhyme or used elsewhere in the poem.

From summer to autumn
It’s September – the wheat fields
Are stubble as the farmer counts the yield.
Nearby the early-morning foggy harbour
Lies on the route to work for the carpenter.
A raven has a favourite haunt.
It can fly, but I know I can’t!
Raven perched on a sea cliff with view of a bay and village in top left
The raven’s favourite haunt
