My painted rock of a Vampire (purple suit/red cape/pointed ears/fangs/red eyes)

“Fangs”

Sharp the fangs

And red eyes pierce

My wicked visage

Is most fierce

Look not upon my face of fear

Lest you feel me rip and tear

Tattooed on my soul

Forevermore

Here’s a poem I wrote about 2013

LOST IN MY NIGHTMARE

~

In the obsidian midnight of my dreams

Nothing, no nothing, is as it seems

The deepest abyss now rules my soul

Insanity gathers to take it’s toll

Mysterious and strange, gravedigger dark

Undertaking souls…leaving it’s mark

Entombed in it’s ebony, inky deeps

Forever and ever, my spirit weeps

The fractures keep probing…my psyche desolate

A crystalline human, myself incarnate

I exist in dimensions, my aura will show

A higher vibration, an awareness to know

I swear my senses are not corrupt

Open my eyes…wake up, wake up

Lost in my nightmare, I’m not sane

I stare at nothingness, I’ll take the blame

My love for black…it’s manifestations

Color my world, in all incantations

Happy Halloween!

Lots of candy, cookies, and a cherry pie! Plus a poem:

‘What’s to eat?

Gimme some treats!

Candy & cookies …

That’d be neat!

Fill me up with all that stuff!

Do I ever think that’s enough?

Never!

Halloween decorations are fun and funny! This one is a black cat dressed in an orange clown suit beside an orange coffee mug that says ‘trick or treat’.

WARM OR COLD?

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

Happy Halloween!

Monster painted rock (green monster/orange background)

Monster, Slug, Snail, Cartoon, Green

HERE’S TO YA

His arms are green and slimy,

As up from the brine they rise.

His words are gurgled and rhyme-y,

And he looks to be a fairly big size.

I don’t know what to think,

While I’m frozen to the spot where I stand,

But I offer the creature a drink,

Given by my shaking hand.

As higher and higher he rose,

Up from the water so deep,

I saw two holes for his nose, and

His eyes began to weep.

He said ’twas the first time ever

Anyone tried to be nice to him.

You could have knocked me down with a feather, when

He said his name was Jim.

So, if ever you meet a stranger, an ogre of some reputation,

Don’t look at him in anger,

Just flow with the situation.

I decorate this little bitty tree for Halloween every year. I put little spooky ornaments of orange and black, and also a string of lights shaped like ghosts! The tree is about two feet tall or less, and I decorate it for Christmas in December, too.

Multi-colored cloths hanging from tree branch, plus other Halloween decorations like skeletons (for Dia de los Muertos ) These were seen at a local park one year for a celebration.

This is the final post for the October Squares (Kind) challenge. Thanks so much for hosting, Becky! 🙂

Spooky night with full moon.

My spooky painted rock (orange with black letters)

“SPOOKY’

Spooky noises

Screeching voices,

Werewolves start to howl…

Candles lit,

Don’t get bit,

By vampires on the prowl.
