Autumnal offering


In the mood of the season...

The angel breezed by, her wings sparkling and her halo askew. She giggled, a high sweet sound in the deepening twilight. A devil followed close behind, his tail dragging in the gravel, his pitchfork snagged on the angel’s skirts.

Then, their mother walked past. Each engrossed in their pursuit of sweet treats, and all oblivious to me.

I lay beneath a golden maple, upon the carpet of autumn’s splendor. A chill breeze unsettled my costume in its passage. And, the fallen leaves whispered softly beneath my weight--complaining, displeased that my blood stained them scarlet…

Happy Samhain to you too! I had a blast. Samhain is my favorite holiday, and Halloween my favorite season. It was so sad to take down all the decoration though.

Oh, Tempest, I don't take my deocartions down for a while yet. I love my gourds and pumpkins. I do put away a few of the ghosties and such, though.

I'm glad you had a blast :) I ate a bit too much candy LOL

Savannah Jordan said...

LOL, Dennie. This is *me* you must expect the darkness to sneak in somewhere. :P

I LOVE Autumn!!

Michele said...

Yep, perfect.

Sorry I've not blogged in awhile. Busy plus Modem was broken for over a week. Missed doing a great Halloween post. Oh well.

You sure did a good one.

I went as a mutant WereSkunk Nurse. My kids were a Vampire and ghoul. Tell me Mom's influence isn't strong, eh?

Hope you had a great Samhain!

Savannah Jordan said...

I love the costume ideas, Michele! WereSkunk...I'll have to remember that :P

Missed you, btw!!

Hugs, Hun.
