Ok now I have told you all how I feel... (I think ,,,)
I am making sure your links are on my blogs,
visitng your blogs more,
and going to try to stay in touch.
Please all of you do the same.
I cannot for the life of me
Understand why I like Halloween you see ?
I'm on a diet so candy it cannot be...
I don't like spiders
Or bats hanging upside down in a tree.
Never liked anyone biting on my neck
Or sticking my head in a tub of water for apples and getting all wet.
Maybe others like seeing ghosts...not me don't like things that float.
Maybe it's the colors
That great Orange and Black
Or all the decorations
We hang up and stack
Maybe it's the costumes that everyone wears
Most of which make me smile or laugh or even stare !
Seeing the kids run down the street and parents chasing behind
Carving the pumpkins and lighting them with candles inside
Halloween night is a fun but sometimes a scary ride
My thoughts on this you all may share
Or you may feel you do not care
I think I will always know what Halloween means to me
Because of what I have listed and said above you see
Just one piece of candy...I wish I had...
But I'm sticking to my diet
And handing it all out of this Trick or Treat bag !
Next year when Halloween comes...I'll read these words...
And see if my thoughts have changed.
Or just re-arranged ?

That people change, colors sing, wind blows, cinnamon smells in the air, seeing the jackos we carved change back into pumpkins and the sweaters we all wear. All the leaves that fall,and turkeys we roast and pumpkin seeds we toast and the chill in the air...shows us fall is surely here.
That's why I love fall.

what more can I say !
S. Caldwell 2010
I made this poem up for the Pfatt Giveaway Drawing blog.
I was sitting on the porch one day you see
And a bug flew right by me...
I screamed, Thought it would get in my eye.
I'm just scary , I even cry .
Then as I layed in the bed one night
Reading a book by the candlelight
I looked up on the wall
And a a Spider was hanging from a hook.
I jumped to my feet even dropped my book.
And grabbed my shoe
To smash it dead
That's what I needed to do , hit that spider in the head.
Yes you might say I am scary a little.
Of bugs, slugs or any critter you see.
I know there not as big as me.
But long as I can remember
Never been a bugs friend
Just get them away ...That all I have to say !
This is a collage of my art. from witches to the Moon Alice ! Dark Carnival and Boney Santa. They are ATC Cards to 4 x 6 doodle paintings, all originals and all FOR SALE ! Thanks for looking and shopping...Make a comment if you like my wares or would like to see more ! Halloween is coming soon... Boo to you!
Are you scary tonight
Our moon is shining bright
Howling and Growling begins
As the bats fly around
And the creepies on the ground
Make you nervous under your skin
Can you watch your step
For things crawling are wet
And you might just step on a few
Can you hope for the best
Halloween like the rest
Will be upon us soon,

If I could paint Jackos all year, I would... If Corn Candy I could eat all year , I would... If I could make witches and masks all year, I would...

Screams and Cries...I would love to hear Longing for Bats to fly by my ear As ghouls creepyingly float Ghost come by from down at the moat Halloween thing I love to share With you all thru out the year.
Today our country starts to make a change There are those who are scared They hearts beat fast And hands are sweating Don't know what may come to pass They have no idea Things moving so fast What will round the corner next Be it good or bad Be it large or small Hold your breathe and close your eyes And soon you will see it all We surely are in for a ride Masks will come off soon And we may jump with fright Or be mad as heck Halloween will be back again next year.... But All she wrote will be right here ...have no fear. Writing my poems, and love to showcase some Halloween art Just what I made this blog for anyway. Wasn't I smart ? So If you like Halloween blogs and you want me to see... Email me here And do tell me ...
There is a scary house on my block
Kids don't stop there...they run by and stare
On Halloween you see a light in the window
But dark the house seems
Still its the old scary house
So kids just scream
Now if you think you can handle it
Knock on there door and see
If people live there or goblins and ghouls
Or if candy treats there will be
But this I can say...I am not going there
that Scary House ...is to scary I swear !
It's a Devil of a Note Ghouls and Goblins Will rise and float We'll hand out lot of sweet treats and hope to not see things with teeth Yes it that scary day of the year... Coming soon.... Folks have no fear. Mask and costumes will appear Screams and moans oh you will hear. If you don't like the dark stay at home and play it smart. I just hope...you will know... When ....It's a Devil of a Note ! S. Caldwell 2008
Little Ghost Story Poem
Let me tell you a little story about a Ghost name Fred. Scared lots of folks, cause he was dead. Flyin' around thru walls and things. Never saying nothing, just Boos & Screams He made it hard for anyone to see Fred was just nice and friendly as can be. Cause he thought folks might not like him as a host. Having a Halloween Party, what he wanted the most His guest list was hard to make ... Vampires, witches, and werewolves don't eat cake. If you think this story was real or fake. Old Halloween Fred gives out cookies he baked.
