howling through tombstones winds evoke resurrection spirits of those passed ‘neath the orange moon cackling heard above the gale witch flies through dark skies bats make their descent terrify trick or treaters candy corn scattered good, bad and ugly creatures of All Hallows Eve prance ‘cross leaf-strewn lawns

    Well done Carolyn. I couldn't get inspired for this one. I have never been much for Halloween since I couldn't celebrate it as a child. Congratulations. Love, Joyce

    Your vocabulary usage is extraordinary, Carolyn! The image of freaked out trick or treaters with their candy corn flying everywhere is awesome! Congrats on this winner. Amazed again! Gwendolen
