Trick or Treat-Mostly Trick!

Here’s a story I wrote about a tough Halloween Night for a couple of seasoned Halloween Revelers.

It’s posted at  ‘ Modern Creative Life ‘ and I hope you will check my story and the many wonderful articles and stories while you’re there

A graceful Lady

a beautiful lady

wrapped in marble, shrouded in sunlight, stranded in a sea of concrete

on a corner in Pike Place Market

looks to the sky with a smile and then springs to life,

dances to music flies with the sunlight

that only the living can see.

Forever Midnight

Have you ever tasted Halloween

with the tip of  your tongue?

Tasted like pennies and burnt sugar


thick and sweet sliding down your throat like warm blood.

Have you seen Halloween

from the corner of your eye

it moved like a cat,  black as midnight

where does it hide until you walk by alone

with nothing but the shadows to see your home?

Meet Halloween

shake it’s hand,

take it’s hand

in your own

pale as death

lonely as dusty bones

dreaming  where it is forever midnight

inside a ruined tomb.

Meet Halloween

tonight if you will.

It’s been waiting  so long

for you.

I felt like I was being watched.

I looked up and what do you know.

I was most certainly being watched by a pale face from a window above the street.

I’ve been looking for Halloween all Summer.

It looks like it found me first.
