IMGP4171Doorbells ringing
“We want CANDY!”
To avoid tricks
Keep sweets handy

Ghosts and goblins
Mischief night
Things that go bump
In the night

An endless parade
Of sights so scary
Skeletons remind us
To be wary

Costume parties
Bowls of treats
Instead of dinner
Let’s eat sweets.

Cats-eyesBroomsticks, cauldrons
So bewitching

Black cats stare
With tails a-twitching

Carved pumpkins
Grins askew
Eyes gleaming
As we all scream . . . BOO!

Briliantly done 😀 Happy Halloween to you too!

Thanks, Nome!

Did you see the Which Witch Ate Eight Nome Gnomes contest?

At this point, I’m winning by default (having failed to tickled the competitive streak in the wordsmiths I know). 😦

Very well done. Enjoy.
(Pumpkins are selling for R80 – that’s about US$10 – each; we’re not buying!)

We don’t do much decorating for Halloween, and we haven’t carved a Jack-O-Lantern in years.

We have a small vignette on the dining room table with a witch, a cauldron, two lollipop ghosts, and a pint-sized pumpkin.

As Paula would say, It’s Enough. 🙂

All right – what I’ve definitely had enough of is you not adding poems to my WEbook project: “Odes to the Everyday.” So get cracking lady – add a few – you’re certainly better than I at this!

Happy Halloween. I have a nephew whose 27th birthday is today – I always have fun with him on this day, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ANDREW MAX TOHLINE!!!

And HH to all!

Thanks, Paula

I haven’t posted anything new on WEbook for ages. If that changes, I’ll definitely swing by your project, Odes to the Everyday.

Happy B’day, Andrew!
