People used to seek out Marie  Laveau and ask her for help, for advice and maybe even a little justice.

A few years ago I went to her grave on Halloween

 and left a little gift and a little request .

Go ahead and ask if it worked.

Go ahead and wonder what I asked of a Powerful Voodoo Queen

on Halloween.

I am sorry to have to say

that’s private.

It’s between me and Marie

and the other residents of

Saint Louis Cemetery on Basin Street.

It used to be a quiet place

with

rolling hills, a lake and trees

We used to picnic there

and sled there

when it snowed.

 

And then one day

or maybe it was at night

someone planted a garden

of stone

 

and now it is a silent place

with rolling hills, a lake and trees

and nobody wants to picnic there

all they want to do is sleep.

A Disturbing Thought

These are all devices  were created to torture, to break, to ruin the human body.

I wonder what it was like to have created them

and sold the idea to a person who ultimately  looked at you and said-

 ” What a great idea. “

Sounds Like A Plan

So.

I have been asked.

What are my plans for Halloween?

Well.

Not much, just going to hang around with some friends.

Want to meet a few of them?

Well of course you do…I’m sure they’ll be out and about your way eventually.

As A Matter of Fact, I DID Find That Amusing

My Sister set out fun Halloween decorations in her front yard- skeletons, spooky cats and a coffin full of bones.

I like the traditional Halloween fare,  so I took some pictures and got a little story- like the skeleton in the coffin has an ax buried in his chest- nice touch, so to speak.

My favorite part of the display wasn’t obvious and you might not notice it if you were to stop by and look around.

The squirrels have been chewing at one of the tombstones and digging around the cemetery.

I don’t know why that made me laugh but it did.

Grave Robbing Zombie Squirrels.

Gotta love it.
