Halloween Pumpkins (Image from stock art created by inky)

The lanterns welcome the little gremlins to the door

joined by ghosts and ghouls the odd vampire or monster

together with animals of all sorts

knocking on doors , all through the night

giving the neighbours occasional fright

toffees and chocolate fill up their bag with

fruit lollies making up part of their swag

in haunting light they’ll make their way

till they head to their homes to party and play

On Halloween Night

the tables were turned

for there was nothing more frightening

to the monsters , ghosts and ghouls

than the sight of little children

playing peek-a-boo

under their bedsheets

Positioned

under a shady spot waiting for

moonlight of all hallows eve

preparing for arrivals of

kreepy ghosts

in the

night time garden

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!

Light in Darkness

Salford 17th October 2020

#Octpowrimo

Outside in the darkness

the spirits dance under the LED Nights

that cast their lights over the tarmac road

shadowy forms skip and hop over kerb and walk

while the cats on the doorstep look on

as the night sky twinkles with the far off light

and constellations watch the night time boogie

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

Scream

#Fowc #Scream

Something eerie is hiding in the dark

chilling all those living in the old house

rickety boards creaking ever so slightly

each one telling you you’re not alone

and as you light up the darkness to see

movement of resident mice – gets an instant reaction

Fantasy

#SoCS #Fan

Salford 6th June 2020

For many years , i’ve been a fan of the fantasy genre.

as Local folk writers with hi tales of mystical lands

near to, or in the vicinity of my home garden

terrific and tantalizing tales of witches and wizards

all playing round in a coppice or wood

some tales are close to the truth –

those up the road by the pennines will tell you that. And

you’ll hear the ghosts and ghouls every time all hallows eve comes about

and enjoy letting your imagination go wild

All Hallows Eve

A post in response to this weeks #Writephoto prompt from

Sue Vincent (at SCVincent.com)

The wicker man had a party

before the angels landed

The wicker man was worried

he thought he’d be reprimanded

See opposite the church ,

he’d built a great wood pyre

something for the ghouls and ghosts

to be inspired

The fire was lit, and around they did dance

taking the time to have fun for a chance

and they did all this before the sunrise

taking the angels by surprise

But up in the heavens, God he did Smile

and left the ghosts and ghouls play for a while

for instead on all saints day when they thought they would creep

they’d be back in their beds, sound asleep

Creepy

#Fowc #Creepy

Cold dark corners of the house can

Really send shivers up the spine

Especially at night

Ethereal spirits dance among the cobwebs

Passing as they do around the floors

Yet – you’ll only call out – spotting the web’s creator!
