Halloween

Trick or treat, lots of candies.
Little witches and warlocks all hyper.
Excited with fun in scary costumes,
Zombies, Mummies, and the Scarecrow awakes.

A pumpkin graces the front door,
its insides scraped out, hollow now,
eyes, nose and mouth carved artistically,
a candle glows casting eerie shadows.

In days gone by, called All Hallows Eve,
Where witches kept secret their coven,
And those who burned at the stake,
Curses made, ignorance continues.

We are drawn to scary movies,
Either screaming or eyes closed,
Most of us won’t forego a challenge,
In the dark cinema, chilling screams will be heard.

So, come Halloween, kids to grownups will celebrate,
from trick to treat around the neighbourhood,
to haunted house parties with gruesome sights,
the fun of Halloween, how afraid do you want to be.

To all my friends and cyber-friends, a happy Halloween. Enjoy and have fun.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
