FRIGHTENING THINGS

FRIGHTENING THINGS

i’m in the chapel
       it’s night    the room is empty
                              loud c minor chord!

old mansion
    boarded-up
         chimney smoking

ruined mansion
    boarded-up
        window lit near the top

piano recital
moonlight sonata
mouse!

my roommate 
    weird smile
        unusual eye teeth

    Oh Daver, you had me laughing LOL I guess that sweetling must almost have felt like one of the "frightening things" when she looked at you with eyes like emeralds embedded in moss? You crack me up!!:)) In reality Mognome was a tiny painted turtle...having no resemblance to any of those characters. I"m still giddy..hehe Best wishes, Love, Mikki

    That old mansionhas some odd things going on in the wee hours. I especially love the moonlight sonata by th mouse I presume! :)

    I wonder what those "unusual eye teeth" were looking at Daver? Lots happening here...a haunting tale, for sure!! Even the mouse sounds scary..LOL Best wishes, Love, Mikki

    daver, I never nailed a picture that way as in my poem, but I like the George Clooney idea of yours!!
