Happy Poetry Friday!
I’m bidding farewell to #Inktober with this last October 31st post. And I guess temporarily to fall as today in Chicago we had winter–snow covered everything. I’m hoping ye old pumpkin came down and has put in some good thoughts for all our dwindling plants…
Here’s my itty bitty poem to carry Inktober out for this year… Prompt: ripe
Pumpkin’s ripe and ready to go
Ghosts are swaying to and fro
Cat let out a curdling yelp
Baby bats flew off for help
Spider’s crawling all which ways
Witch’s watch covered in haze
Halloween’s here, all ghouls beware
Pumpkins rule at this affair,
They’ll fill your ghoulishness
with ghastly scare…

Thinking about all those in California and hoping they find a safe place–and that these horrific fires die down.
