Haunting Halloween

"Haunting Halloween" whistling winds lace leaves around haunted castle as ghostly lovers wander dark dreary halls midnight chimes as eerie essence moves tassle chains clanging loud behind ebony stone walls ... candlelight glimmers through foggy windowpanes while tangerine pumpkins peek glowing in rain. magic potions are chanted as witches fly sailing on yellow broomsticks through rainbow sky. ~~~~~~~ vampires awake feasting on blood and bone haunting Halloween with black capes and white fangs as skeletons vibrate to bell's somber tone spiders weave silky mesh webs while weak prey hangs ... goblins emerge with black cats leering green eyes wearing masquerade costumes of dark disguise. moonlight invades shadows slow creeping to scare as silver stars twinkle for those unaware. ~~~~~~~ one October night beckons all cursed undead to wander, invisible, on earthly lands amid decorations luminous ahead two ghostly lovers may be seen holding hands ... beware! as false frills become magnets to draw fierce wolf man is always nearby with sharp claw. mysterious legends entice those unseen to strange secret castle haunting Halloween. ~~~~~~~ *For Russell Sivey's The Ultimate Halloween Contest. *Written by: Linda-Marie The "Sweetheart" of P.S. *Sept. 17, 2012.
