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

Spare rib

#halloween #chinese #pork #spare #ribs #octpowrimo

When weekend comes around

I enjoy a Chinese take away

There’s plenty of flavours to go at

Come All Hallows’ eve, I avoid it completely

Heavens allow … it’s not anything religious

Events might conspire….where I get a visit from the piggy that The

Spare ribs came from

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

October Skyline

Sends out a creepy message

Halloween is near

You could say its light

from the moon or street lanterns

but summats moving

Calling to them all

whether dead or alive

its halloween – jive!

so out with message

invitation for the night

enjoy a good fright

Out at Night

#Promptuarium #Octpowrimo #halloween #goblins

Out in the farmers field

while the pumpkins slept

out in the field

something crept

leaving a trail of

debris in their way

stopping the chance

of hallows eve play

a question they ask

a simple why?

do people persist with the lanterns ?

they like pumpkin pie….

For its not just trick or treaters

on halloween night

who are frightened away

by the lantern light.

They want to have fun

They just want to play

so to Mr Jack-o-lantern

Please go away!

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!

Darkness

#Octpowrimo #animals #halloween

Halloween seems to have come early

the lights outside have dimmed

nothing around in the skies

but on terra firma hear dogs and cats cry

they scamper around for a way in

disturbing stray metallic food tins

they really dont like to give their owners a fright

but watch as they head for that security light

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
