The Shadows at Mytton Hall

Halloween 2023 Prompts  #2  There was a strange feeling in the air that morning…

Mytton Hall, Francis Seymour Haden, 1818-1910

Follow me to Mytton Hall

where the shadows hide until

night falls.


Just before the Sunsets

and a few seconds after

the shadows and shades

tear themselves away from the walls

of Mytton Hall then

they crawl down the attic stairs

they slide out from under the beds

and the kitchen drawers

where the bone handled knives are kept.


Follow me to Mytton Hall

but let’s not do it  hours and hours before the Sunsets

because that wouldn’t be any fun at all.
