Share Your World – 2016 Week 51 – Favorite Holiday Edition

***

It’s time for more questions from Cee, and answers from me! 🙂

***

What is your favorite holiday?

I do like all the holidays, the big ones, and the little ones. My favorite though, is Halloween! It’s been my favorite ever since I can remember. I like the atmosphere of spookiness, the costumes, the parties, and the decorations. I’d have my whole house decorated as Halloween all year, if I could.

blogger-image-878065477What types of food is associated with your holiday?

Candy, mostly, for the trick or treat kids that come by the house. Of course I have some to eat, also.

Do you travel for your holiday?

No, not anymore. I used to roam the neighborhood when I was a kid, and then later taking my girls around the neighborhood for trick or treats. One year we were visiting my in-law’s in another city, and my SIL gave a party for all the kids. First we took them to get candy at a few houses, then came back for party food and games. It was pouring down rain that night, too.

Is it a religious or spiritual holiday?

No, not for me.

Is there a gift exchange?

Sometimes, we give our kids a Halloween card, and a few fun things that are Halloween themed.

How long does the celebration last?

Just the one night. However, the build-up and anticipation for all the fun begins way earlier, like the first of the month. There were always lots of discussions about what costume you’d be wearing, and lots of changing of minds. I used to sew their costumes from a pattern, too, so that took awhile before the big day.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful I’m pretty much over being sick. Looking forward to Christmas celebrations with daughters, and their families.:)

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! 🙂

SICK

Standard

True Story!

“SICK”

Happy Halloween to me

I’m sick as I can be

Coughing and sneezing

Feeling hot, and then freezing

Phlegm and snot is what I’ve got

Aches and pains, I feel like rot

A headache that pounds

I just lay around

With a moan and a groan

Just leave me alone

Tylenol and tissues

You know I have issues

I want this sickness to go away

On this happy Halloween haunting day

dVERSE & OCTPOWRIMO – “WARM or COLD?”

dVERSE & OCTPOWRIMO – “WARM or COLD?”

***

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

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

octpowrimo2016c

One is for OctPoWriMo, which is October Poetry Writing Month,  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:

“WHO ARE YOU?”

If you were to see,

A vampire with blue eyes,

Would you still be frightened?

Would you realize?

What if instead of fangs,

Sharpened to a point,

You saw a vampire’s teeth

All straightened and ajoint?

A Vampire could be anyone,

Anyone at all…

Just waiting for your trust,

Waiting for your fall.

You fall into the depth

Of those azure eyes;

Your heart on a silver platter,

Where you’ll surely be sucked dry.

JNW’s Halloween Challenge: Tricks

***

This is a poem I wrote for OctPoWriMo  back in 2014. Maybe I should re-title it “Tricks of the Eye”?

We love to play make-believe at Halloween, by putting on costumes and masks. We think we are

tricking you, but most can see through your masquerade. 🙂

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.

Didn’t really have any broom photos, but I found these stickers in my supplies.

They are actually temporary tattoos. 🙂
