"Ghouls and goblins all around
Nary is one to be found
Hidden as a sense of fright
For us all, Halloween night!"

I hope everyone has a Safe and Happy Halloween, once the day has arrived.



Howling ghosts take to the wind
After dark, where shadows send
People rushing to their beds
Pillows there to hide their heads
Yesterday, no more a friend


Haunted images surround
Autumn’s glory, all around
Leaves are tossed; no one knows why
Laughter fills the nighttime sky
Only children find the way
Where witches and goblins play
Eerie voices lead to where
Echoes taunt the souls who dare
Need a true , good natured scare

The moon is almost full and a cat left its silhouette on my wall, so it must be time to wish you a Happy Halloween for this creative little piece.

Well done Jill, the colouring and the mood are set from the outset and the word painting captures well the spirit of the season.

Wonderful write, but Jill, to tell you the truth, I don't celebrate Hallowe'en; any holiday that takes precedence over CHRISTmas doesn't sit very well with me. Still, a good poem; very well written!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Burleson, Karen Lynn. :)
