Flash Friday 55: Halloween Night



Fairytale creatures, magical beasts
Begin their quests for sugary feasts
Goblins galore, ghostly ghouls
The scarier the better is only rule
Howling, shouting up and down the street
At each lighted door “Trick or Treat!”
Anticipating with utter glee
Gumdrops, lollipops, and sticky candy
A medley of fantastical delights
All gobbled up on Halloween night. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am participating in G-Man's Flash Friday 55 meme, where the object is to come up with a story or prose in exactly 55 words. Please visit his website, Mr. Know it All for other stories.

I'm looking forward to it. I'll put on a scary movie and wear a witches had to answer the door, then pick through my kid's candy when they get home.

Tis was a delight. We just went out and bought candy for Halloween treats. Now the trick is to save some for the goblins.

Unlike my sick and twisted take on Halloween, this is sweet. Just like Halloween candy. Great 55.
