What to pen on Halloween? Dost thou think you are such a wonder of wit? Many do, thinking of topics, utterly vile. Here come the poet Kings and Queens, proudly walking on a thick, carpeted aisle. Read Yeats or Cummings first! If you think your poetry, can satisfy human thirst. The human, with lame poetry, cursed, that is not even verse! But.....then poet stars come out that shimmer amd shine! Hoprefully, it will be yours on which others are fulfilled and dine. Poetry that blesses another’s heart. That makes it smile, I call that an art. 10/30/2021

you are right Panagiota mou there are crazy people who find opportunities on Halloween night and could carry out criminal acts or indeed maybe just mischief - I am sure parents are wary nowadays about letting children go out alone. Hope you are well my Greek sis, maybe you will enjoy my Medusa poem. Hugs and blessings, Jenny.

Lots of good points you make. One can enjoy, and learn a-lot from Cummings and Yeats. Have a nice Halloween, Pangie: I got the candy ready, and a some old decorations out -- but we may only get a few little ones, with their parents during the day. Maybe a handful. Not like when I was a kid.

Happy Halloween. Costumes must be PC now. Puke! I live in an enclosed Halloween here. Nor salesmen knocking on doors, allowed, Seniors like me, should be careful on Halloween. Nice you do that, Jim!. Elena gets kids in HS from other cities. Not neighborhood kids, 18 yr olds? You and I lived in the old days, when life was joyful and goofs did not prowl our neighborhoods. It was Great !
