Scary Moments

On Halloween, while in the old wood crossing,
The deathly silence broken by  raven’s cry.
The moon was briefly blocked by a cloud passing,
While I froze as something snapped a branch nearby.
An old tom cat screamed and ran across my path,
As a laden bag of candy slipped my grasp.
Please, please! Out of the backyard woods I stumbled
And to the safety of my home I tumbled.

    Great job Craig and congratulations! Halloween was one of my favorite holidays. Back then almost everything was homemade...Candied apples, cupcakes, you name it. My brothers and I always took TWO bags with us, loaded them down and gorged ourselves sick for 2 days...Never had any scary moments though...Once again, congrats - Tim

    This reminds me of a Halloween story I wrote that took place in the fifties. It was published by Day Tripping Magazine in Canada. Sensational poem, Craig. Many congrats on your win.
