HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Fun, and games, and spooks that fright

All lead up to Halloween night

Parties, and candy, and carnivals, too

All this means, is fun for you

Pumpkins, mazes, and apple ciders

Skeletons, ghosts, and creepy spiders

Hayrides, and scarecrows, and cool autumn weather

We have a good time, when we’re together

Witch’s broom, and harvest moon,

It will be time to trick-or-treat, soon

Be careful, be safe, and have lots of fun

We’ll be back to normal, with the morning sun

REVEALER/CONCEALER

The day before tomorrow…is today…

Your mask of anticipation builds.

Excitement electrifies the air.

What will you be?

What have you been before?

Your inside self begs to come out.

Today, your tomorrow will be revealed.

Think of it…

Why do you want to be another,

Or, do both of you reside inside together?

One day to be the other.

Let it be known…

Your true self – your alter ego –

Will come forth.

A subconscious serenade to

What could have been.

You put on your Halloween masquerade of reality…

It hides nothing…It shows everything.

Your true identity is loosed into the here and now.

One night to reveal…One night to peel away

At your brick walls of respectability.

Go forth in your splendor…fooling no one.

Your psyche revels in it’s one night to be true.

Don’t be frightened, it’s only you…

Your innate personality shows you the way.

This one night to surface. They’ll understand.

You’ll squelch, and hide, and deceive yourself.

When the revelry is over, the night turns to normalcy and,

You’ll be the deceiver of your soul again.

Hiding away your alter ego for another night like this…

A future into what future may come.

You quiet your soul’s yearning for release from polite restraints.

Your wild wants out…it wants to take over.

Society would frown, and put you down…

You must fit in, you’re required to blend…

Until this one night – Halloween Night –

When your mask shows truly what you’ve been.

Another Fun Blitz Poem

HALLOWEEN WITH EYES

Scream out loud

Scream for Halloween

Halloween is fun

Halloween in October

October thirty-first

October in the fall

Fall of Rome

Fall is autumn

Autumn trees are pretty

Autumn brings chills

Chills and fever

Chills and thrills

Thrills are exciting

Thrills are daring

Daring and brave

Daring to live

Live and die

Live and love

Love me tender

Love me and leave me

Me and you

Me and my shadow

Shadow puppets

Shadow people

People are strange

People watching

Watching the clock

Watching and waiting

Waiting forever

Waiting around

Around the world

Around the block

Block and tackle

Block of cheese

Cheese and crackers

Cheese fondue

Fondue is fun

Fondue is festive

Festive and bright

Festive at night

Night is dark

Night is cold

Cold as ice

Cold is blue

Blue skies above

Blue as your eyes

Eyes can glow

Eyes are orbs

Orbs

Glow

MOONSTRUCK

Amazing and artful

Bewitched and beautiful

Come the creatures

Daring to dance

Enchanted and ethereal

Fantastic and frightening

Ghosts and goblins

Haunting your Halloween

NIGHTMARE

Deep in the night,

Blackbirds take flight.

They give you a fright,

From dark to daylight.

With morning sunrise,

You open your eyes.

You find it’s all lies,

Yet, you still hear their cries.

New day it still brings,

The flapping of wings.

The nightmare, it clings,

In your mind it still stings.

The worry and wonder,

No more will you blunder.

You must put asunder,

This spell you are under.

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS

Day of the dead…

There’s nothing to fear –

Bake some dead bread,

Call your relatives near.

Ofrendas tell a story;

Sugar skulls are cool.

You shouldn’t have a worry…

They’re not scary, as a rule.

We decorate with marigolds,

Say prayers, bring food, and more…

Pay our respects to all the Souls…

To all those who’ve gone, before.

LOST IN A CORN MAZE

Corn husks rustle, left and right…

Forsaken on this cold, dark night…

Alone…

All alone…

I realize they hypnotize…

Throwing magic into my eyes…

Alone…

All alone…

Is synchronicity a possibility?

Is this accidental, or just incidental?

Alone…

All alone…

I must take action, cause a distraction;

I need interaction; I feel I’m in traction…

Alone…

All alone…

I must use my senses, to break down defenses,

and break free from this agony…

Alone…

All alone…

This test will only make me stronger,

And from this mess, I’ll be lost here no longer…

Alone…

All alone…

Oh, I’m just a scarecrow, who’s biding my time…

Trying to find reason, out of the rhyme…

Alone…

All alone…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost in my mind…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost to my kind…

Alone…

All alone…

HAUNTED HOUSE

House of horror

House of fright

Gives me chills

This cold, cold night

Afraid without

Afraid within

Rattling bones

And a skeleton’s grin

Cobwebs are hanging

And shutters are banging

What’s that noise

It’s chains a-clanging

There seeps a fog

So damp and dense

It swirls around

Both house and fence

The floors are creaky

Tonight’s most freaky

No place for those

Who’s hearts are weakly

Hear the lonely wolves a-howling

Ghosts and monsters go a-prowling

Dare you to come in with me

Two together…brave we’ll be

POEM # 22

This is my first effort at a form of poetry called Blitz…it is just as I wrote it, I didn’t go back to change anything. I found that it is so much fun to do, so plan on doing more.

HOST CAN PURIFY

Be a ghost

Be a host

Host a party

Host a show

Show a smile

Show some spunk

Spunk is cheerful

Spunk is fun

Fun is great

Fun is sweet

Sweet treats

Sweet Beats

Beats of sound

Beats all around

Around the house

Around the world

World of wonder

World in space

Space to breathe

Space to grow

Grow some flowers

Grow some powers

Powers that be

Powers to see

See me fly

See that guy

Guy is tall

Guy is shy

Shy away from

Shy is nervous

Nervous nellie

Nervous as a cat

Cat goes meow

Cat can hiss

Hiss and Boo

Hiss like a goose

Goose is loose

Goose can swim

Swim in a pool

Swim in a lake

Lake of blue

Lake of fire

Fire is hot

Fire is Flames

Flames can burn

Flames will purify

Purify my mind

Purify my soul

Soul

Mind
