Trick or Treat ?

#Socs #Halloween #Trick #Treat

Jackolanterns (art by inky)

No lanterns coming to the front porch

No ghosts floating past the door

No Vampires not worrying ’bout their canines

No Werewolves coming to explore

The street is surprisingly quiet

the children all indoors

as parents keep them from bugs in the air

and other nasty spores

But there’s bobbing apples a plenty

and games in the family house

and treats and the telly, filling their bellies

till they all have to be quiet as a mouse

Jack-o-lanterns

Lights in the window

allowing ghosts and ghouls , big or small

nice or naughty

to join in with Halloween fun

even those who float about have a

right royal time – with those who are just dressed up

not that you would notice!

Man in the middle

expecting to receive a

defininate message

in the air around him

unless he’s disturbed

messages from the angels and spirits come quick

Scary

#Fowc #Scary

Some might say your

Common garden horror flick at Halloween is enough to

Accelerate your heart beat – but

Really, it’s after the festivities of Christmas and New Year

You’ll really scream out – stay off the scales!

Basket

Halloween pumpkin basket

#fowc #basket

behind each little basket on Halloween night

a little munchkin , male or female, in a

spooky costume, and as the treats

keep on coming this receptacle

eventually fills all the way to the top

toffees, sweets and chocolates for spooky visitors

Mystery

Mystery

All Hallows eve, Salford 2017

Maybe it was a ghost that paid a visit

yesterday – but if that’s the case

some ghost has a taste for cocoa and cookies

taken from my suppertime plate

each cookie now resembling a crescent moon

reduced levels in the cocoa mug

yes its a puzzle – whodunnit ?

Eerie

Eerie

Entering an empty house can be

Enough to make the most brave of people shiver

Rickety gates and floorboards don’t half make a noise

If the wind travels over them, it’s like something is there

Expecting you, but there’s nothing to be seen

Old Moggy Mew

31st October 2016

A poem for Halloween – written by yours truly.

Artwork composed using Colorfy

Old Moggy Mew

By Brian F Kirkham

Cat.jpg

Old Black cat sits on the broken stone step,

waiting for his owner to appear.

She’s taken to the air in flight

the midnight sky is clear.

And as the stars they move about

A feathered friend appears

An Owl coming from the above loft

“Hello, Cat” he cheers…

somethings brewing on the hill

the ghosts are gathering – feel the chill

moggy mew looks out into hallowed stars

and spots his owner from up there afar

she hovers down softly – and mew leaps on the broom

and with a twitch of the stock – it moves with a zoom

flying cross country and farm and on ranch

as mew holds on tight to the magical branch.

Shiver

Shiver

The change in the seasons

It leaves you cold

as you make your way

walking through the woods

 

First frosts paint delicate crystals

across fallen tree leaves

they crunch underfoot

as you make your way home

 

as jack frost paints

you pull at your coat

wrapping your scarf

tight round your throat

 

A noise in the distance

and heart goes a quiver

there’s no one around

and in fear you do shiver.
