Halloween falls on Oct 31st and is one of the oldest and one of the most popular celebrated days, second only to Christmas. Millions of people observe Halloween as if it is a holiday and dress up in costumes, have parties, and/or go trick-or-treating.
Besides being a day of fun, Halloween is also associated with evil spirits bringing on ghosts, goblins, witches and haunted houses. Pumpkins take on various personalities as jack-o-lanterns and found on window sills, porches, and various sites in neighborhoods and towns.
There are many versions of the meaning of Halloween and while some remain consistent, various cultures view Halloween differently yet traditional practices remain the same. Halloween, while viewed by some as all about creepiness and the dead, is also a meaningful time noting the end of the growing season and a sign the colder months are soon to be upon us.
Ghouls and goblins, their motives impugned
Wispy ghosts play games with the moon
Flurried remnants of time hitchin a ride
The witch on her broom beaming with pride
Her quest for peace a slippery slope
A world going sideways yet filled with hope
Well-spun character in the walk and the talk
A redefined hunch of squeak or squawk
The witch and the fairies upon her broom
Recast frowns into smiles as they vroom and zoom
Tis a Halloween wish while weaving this tale
Persuasions of serendipity shall avail
Let’s Meet & Greet one another at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe
