The Attic

Word Of the Day Challenge: Pique

The room in the attic

is not empty

it is not lived in.

The room in the attic

is not quiet

it is not warm, it is not cold.

The room in the attic

was never a home

for anyone alive or anyone dead

but sometimes there is a light in the window

and the door swings open

 then it closes softly again

 the light blinks off

upstairs in the attic of my house

where no one has have ever lived

and no one has ever died.


19 Days and Counting

When considering our Halloween Costumes what do we do?

We ask our shadows, ” hey guys, what’s looking good? ”

Most of what our shadows like to wear would give Stephen King nightmares and make your Grandma have a hissy fit, but THAT is what Halloween is all about.

The thing is, what if you honestly don’t have a single shadow or  dark thought?

I  know, humans are human and we all have shadows.

Unless you’re a dog.

This is  one of my dog’s costumes- he’s a Unincorn.
