Word of the Day Challenges: Urges

Photographer Unknown

The pumpkin fields by my house are empty-

not a single pumpkin was grown there this year


The abandoned farmhouse,

the cemetery down the road

not a soul is haunting them this year


The masks are faceless

the costumes have no bodies

the monsters have deserted us this year.


It’s going to be

a deathly quiet Halloween

but I still look forward to it

this  year.
