Spooktober Festival Blog Hop!

Cobwebs draped the darkened porch
Jack-o-lanterns glowed with a tiny torch
Ghosts danced merrily from stakes in the yard
Stew bubbled in the cauldron with vegetables they had charred
Razors glittered in the moonlight
While the barber prepared his chair for the evening shaving fight.


Okay, so I don't do horror very well.

  4. You didn't have to do horror but you did a great job! I wonder if this barber is related to Sweeny Todd that sneaky devil. Lets hope they don't serve meat pies.

  9. I enjoyed this short tale. It's almost a poem. If it is a poem, never mind me, I'd be hard pressed to write poetry.

  12. So cute! My husband wrote a poem for the challenge too. (And I don't do horror very well either; it always ends up being more feel-good than horror.)

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother.

Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have
