Halloween Night

Post by Tom Watson » Mon Oct 20, 2008 1:58 pm

Across a graying sky
Where stringy clouds of wisp
Moved over the white eye
Of moon, shadows slid and dipped…

Tall pointed hats
Tumbled through the mist
Disturbing falling bats paths
Toward the rusted leaves piled, dry fists.

In the field
Where screaming laughing pumpkins
Shattered as the scarecrows finally yield
And flee the moldy ground and movement within.

Feral green eyes blink
And disappear where the cat,
Black as the shadows where it slinked,
Ran with a screech from a falling bat…

Figures moved against the darkening light
Humped, squat, silent and loud,
They moved as one in the growing night
Seeking the offering lights in the safety of a crowd.

And the occasional laugh carries
In the frosted air to the moon full and bright,
Where a tall pointed shadows drift by,
A special scene on a special Halloween night.
