Smorgasbord Poetry – Colleen Chesebro’s Tuesday Tanka Challenge – Poet’s Choice #Double Etheree – The Spell by Sally Cronin

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

This week it is poet’s choice for Colleen’s Tuesday Poetry Challenge 147 and since time is whizzing faster than I can keep up with… I thought I would remind you just what October is really all about…time to get prepared for the night of reckoning….

The Spell by Sally Cronin

Step
into
October.
The month when those
who live in shadows
stir in unholy crypts.
Plans are afoot for mischief.
The victims are those that breathe air,
can survive the bright glare of sunlight,
and are unaware of the doom to come.
But there is a spell to thwart the demons.
Potent when spoken by a young child,
more so when they are in costume
with fangs and a devil’s tail.
So remember humans
on that special night
always respond
not with trick
but with
treat.
