Trick or Treat

***

Happy holiday hijinks

Abound this night

Laughter and

Little ones go

Out trick or treating

Wearing costumes of their choosing

Even if it’s cold weather

Everyone has a good time

(k)Nocking on doors, begging for candy

Poem # 6

HALLOWEEN HAPPINESS

~

Halloween comes but once a year

It is my favorite day.

Instead of being melancholy,

Let’s chase the clouds away.

I’ll drizzle caramel on crisp, red apples,

And add rainbow sprinkles, too.

I’ll make enough for all of us,

And certainly for you.

We’ll decorate with orange and black,

And, if it rains, who cares?

We’ll grab our sack,

And not look back,

As we go on down the stairs.

You’ll paint your face,

Wear satin and lace…

A pretty princess you will be.

And I will be a cute, funny bunny…

Hopping around for all to see.

Then when we get home,

And the night is ’bout gone,

We’ll relive all the fun we had.

We’ll eat lots of candy,

And feel real dandy…

That we didn’t have time to be sad.

dVERSE & OCTPOWRIMO – “WARM or COLD?”

Standard

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:

Homophone Me!

OCTPOWRIMO – DAY 12 – STRONG

Standard

OCTPOWRIMO – DAY 12 – STRONG octpowrimo2016c

***

Today is the 12th day of October Poetry Writing Month, and the prompt is ‘strong’.

***

“WHO YA GONNA BE?”

The strong man superhero

The princess and the ghoul

This is the night for frightening

A night to play the fool

Their costumes fun or fanciful

Little beggars come to call

Tricks and treats are all in fun

Happy Halloween to them all
