It's time to spook things up a bit, me thinks...
Halloween looms near.
Crispy nights, and apple cinnamon delights.
Masked faces guide us through starlit sky.
Glittered goblins and sparkly skulls.
Spooky tales at midnight.
Pumpkins here and pumpkins there, all sizes and shapes, we don't care.
A taste of magic in the air.
A shadow here, a creek there.
Late night strolls, darkest skies and weeping trees.
How I love this time of year.
The spirit of Halloween is short as short can be here.
Maybe only one day long you see, warm skies and summer lingers...
In this curious desert land.
But if you stay up late enough, you feel the cool send shivers up your spine by night.
And then you know, you know, the time is very near.
A chill, a fire, a dance around the cauldron.
What with real witch tales in our family, and my grandma's endless true scary stories, my mind is full with memories of spooks and phantoms a plenty.
Tales so scary, we would sit around a giant wooden table by night, and my Nana would scare me so much I could not move.
My breath would have shivers.
Tales of great great grandmother's almost being buried alive.
Witches casting spells.
Hauntings way up in the double door attic.
Old ladies trying to strangle you by night.
And spells, oh spells so many.
More family tales here.
I remember when I was in elementary school, I found out about
Oh, we would spook ourselves into oblivion with that fascinating tale.
Was she stealing children, or howling in the night?
We didn't know.
But in our youngest heart of believing hearts, we felt her.
We knew she was there.
Young imaginations running wild.
