Welcome

Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

Spooky Night

Deep into October's longest night
Bats are flying, moon shining bright
A chilly wind is howling
Or is it a werewolf?
A door is creaking
Lights fluttering...
Suddenly,
A ghost.
Boo!!

Today I didn't feel like following the theme of the prompt (messenger), but I did follow the form (a nonet).
Hallowe'en is coming you guys!! 😊

    1. Yes, I needed a little lightness in my life, and my children are starting to think a lot about Halloween, so... it was the obvious theme! Thank you for reading and commenting, your words are always valued!

    1. How old/what grade are your students?
      Sleep has been eluding me, but reading your comment is making me smile big!
