Halloween Rehearsal

I am so glad to have stumbled upon Susanna Leonard Hill's 9th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest. It provided me with a bit of seasonal inspiration and it was a delight to write again.

Halloween Rehearsal

Cobweb-woven spider-dreams
Goblins practice silent screams
Potions perk and cauldron steams.
Soon comes Halloween.

Catch a newt and hairy eye.
Train some bats to pierce the sky.
Rattle bones so bare and dry.
Here comes Halloween.

Dragons run their shiny scales
Black cats hunch and quiver tails
Ghosts fan out unfurl like sails
Close to Halloween.

Last glance in the mirror, quick.
Fix your hat and grab your stick
Candy bag should do the trick.
Now it’s Halloween.
