A Halloween Celebration

Blustery winds wail as a lonely dog howls out of tune. Loons

cry out their guttural and eerie sounds as shadowy figures,

not friendly folk, commiserate with ghouls and goblins planning

and plotting a fright night to behold. An intoxicating sky glitters

as bats and black cats tango in the stars. Apparitions waltz

with the man in the moon as broom wielding witches jitterbug atop

quilted clouds. One may wonder why the ado? Come hither, my friends,

and enjoy this spooky affair. It’s Halloween!

evading spirits

cosmic rhythm lost in time

hustle the applause

  2. Not just any Hallowe’en, but a Super Blue Moon, at which the damsels to aim their brooms, and the canines, their baying. Then, too, it’s Saturday night-all shall break loose!!
