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 dog barking ferociously – at nothing
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.

ooh! such a fun write! You captured great images, and hooked me with “while pumkins stare”! Happy Hallwoween!
Thanks Adrienne! Happy Halloween to you too!
Oh yeah. This actually is even more spooky because I’ve been watching “American Horror Story” on FX. So creepy!
That new series Grimm starts tonight (NBC I think) – sooo looking forward to it. Also watch The Walking Dead…although it freaks me out.
A cool write, Mel. 🙂 Enjoy your Halloween!
What a treat. Creepy in the very best way! 🙂
