UPDATE: I wasn’t a finalist, but received my second Honorable Mention! Thank you Susanna and Judges!
Halloweensie time again! Thank you to Susanna Hill for her wonderfully fun contests!
This year’s 100 word (or less story must include some variation of the words: cauldron, shiver, and howl. Take a peek at my entry, and all of the MANY amazing entries on Susanna’s blog. Thanks for stopping by!
MY BEST TRICK YET
Beat your cauldron like a drum
as ghouls go marching by!
Shiver-shake and quiver-quake
as witches fill the sky!
Eyeballs roll, and fingers crawl,
without a head or hand…
But as for me, just wait and see
the trick that I have planned!
When all the cheer of daylight turns
to mournful howls of night,
and beastly boys meet ghastly girls
by jack-o-lantern light…
I open up my coffin lid
and hide inside, unseen!
Yes, I’m the only vampire who’s
afraid of Halloween!
