A SLOPPY FLOPPY HALLOWEEN TALE
Her broom she sweeps, a careless witch,
While others of her sisters swoop, across
Moons many, and a thousand stars

Her spells she forgets, her incantations,
Get warped, because she refuses to practice;
A lazy witch, all the fun will miss

Come the night of pumpkin grins,
Eerie ghostly shadowing, and
Ghastly howling wicked winds

Tis Halloween, she sweeps her tears
In languid strokes, next year for sure,
Her broom she vows, is going for a ride.

shadowy moon -
tree silhouettes quiver dans
an eerie whisper

  1. Oh, I feel sorry for her. I can relate to procrastination and being befuddled :-) A sweet Halloween tale.

  3. That which isn't nurtured is lost. No wonder she's all tears, poor lazy witch. Maybe next year...
