JNW’S Halloween Challenge: Decorations

Let’s Deck The Halloween Halls With Devil’s Fingers

and maybe a bone or two

how about

a served head

a Witch on a broom

a Zombie eating a brain

or a putrid gooey ghoul

I’ll string up some hearts

fresh out of their cages

I’ll raid a coffin or two

so follow me and try not to scream

I’d hate to make decoration

out

of

you.

Was Not…Was So…

This is what an artificial blog post looks like.

It’s pretty much a collection of Halloween things that popped up on my phone this morning.

But I thought they were cool, so here they are…where my real post ISN’T

Bwahahahaaaaa

(ps thank you to my Facebook Friends for posting this stuff!)

One of my most favorite places to visit on the entire planet is Victoria BC, Canada- and the first place I go is to the Miniature World Museum. I’ve been in love with this museum since I went to Victoria as a little girl- and I still am crazy in love with it.

It wasn’t the cuteness of the miniatures that intrigued me- it was the detail- every small detail that caught me and fed what I learned later was my writer’s eye and in turn my writer’s voice.

In no particular order are some exhibits that I have caught my eye- each small piece each minute  has a story to tell.

Can you see them too?

Something whispered to me

from the railroad tracks below

Four little numbers from a bygone year

have a story to tell

 

Come on  down and join us

ignore the tracks the trains

ignore the hungry darkness

that feeds  a the tunnel called

1904

 

I think I’m caught in a web

soft and light and fine

I’m not sure how much longer

I can keep myself

from making that story

mine.

It’s Only A Picture

I photographed this at a cemetery.

This picture was macabre on so many levels, but if I had to tell you what I had in mind as I stood there and took the picture I’d have to say:

‘I don’t care what anybody says, Vampires are real and the one buried here is demented’

That thought crept into my head and has made itself at home.

It’s living there now.

It spends most of it’s time laughing.

Make.It.Stop.
