Trick or treat through the snow

Shivering ghosts, and goblins, you know

Since all they get is frozen feet

Makes more sense to conserve the heat

Stay cozy and warm by the fire

Just go buy all the treats you desire


This time I’m combining two poetry challenges into this one poem.


One is for OctPoWriMo, which is October Poetry Writing Month, Β for Poets on the Page, and the prompt word for today was ‘senseless’.

Here is their link:


One is for dVerse Poets, and the prompt for today’s poetics was to use at least two ‘homophones’. The ones I used were, since/sense, and by/buy.

Here is their link:

Homophone Me!


Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{

  1. Chuckling from this one! I do remember some very cold and wet halloween nights when my kids went out and came back so cold and dripping wet from rain or sleet. But their comment was always, “but mom, it’s supposed to be spooky out there tonight!” πŸ™‚ Don’t think many young kids would settle for a bag of candy in front of the fire. Sure makes SENSE to me though, SINCE I don’t like eerie nights anyway! πŸ™‚ So glad you posted, Barbara! Come back again and do meander and imbibe some other homophones from our other dVerse writers! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Lillian! I know my girls wanted to show off their costumes, but many times it was too cold or rainy, and they had to wear a coat. Takes all the fun out of it. A nice warm fire, snug in a blanket, and a bowl of treats sounds good to me. πŸ™‚ Wishing you a fun and super wonderful trip! I’m about to take a trip through the links to see what everyone has posted!
