With the goings on in the world today, I’m never sure what will greet me when I first listen to the news after a lovely night of sleep.
I first wrote this little poem back in the fall of 2007, I made a few changes, to share it with you now…. have fun, let your imagination flow.
How eerie the night
when everyone looks for a fright
carved pumpkin heads
leer with evil delight
their eyes bleary and red
their lopsided grin
sends a chill from within
children cheer with delight
when ghosts go bump in the night
So tuck yourself in
don’t let the news of the day,
scare your good sense away.
Once upon a time, October came once a year
Now it seems, every day is one the speaks of fear.
Really, let’s think on this, do we want to live this way
I pray each day, that our friendships
will flow and grow
till each and every one of us
in reaching out, will overtake
the negativity spread by “others”
and put pumpkins back on the table
in tasty pies that we will gladly share
with everyone, for they will be filled with
thanksgiving, love. friendship and appreciation,
stock ingredients of our every day.
