Six Word Fridays: soundOctober 28th, 2011 | Posted by in six word fridays
The night falls into unnatural silence
Familiar sounds abruptly muted – and then…
The creaking of an old house,
Shifting its weight in the night
A sudden chill runs through you
Shivered neck, senses prickling – a presence
Felt but not seen; shudder, breathe
While pumpkins stare; yes, it’s Halloween
This post is inspired by the gobliny-goodness of Halloween. Do you celebrate Halloween or leave it to the kiddies? My favourite part is carving the pumpkins. So fun as I never know if it will be a happy, fierce or silly face until I start carving.
Now why not head on over to Melissa’s blog for some Six Word Friday treats.
