Rasta Ruben

On an cool Autumn night, Eerie and full of dread. ...not fear...but locks. Darkness is embraced by light, Peace stirs in the midnight wind, ...not a calm...but a gesture of his hand. Simple and sweet...a mystery hides Behind the pleasant mood. ...not a state of mind...but the smile on his face. With a skull peering over his shoulder, Silent growls begin to grrr. ...not growls of a wolf...but his hunger of sweets. The mood begins to fade, As a black bird paused in flight, ...not in the air...but on his shirt. Sets the tone for the night, As he dresses up for Halloween, ...he’s not Bob Marley...he’s Rasta Ruben. __________________________________ For Carols Browns “Funny Spooks” contest My reference material is in my blog photos...
