Fall in Colorado is almost too gorgeous this year! It may have reached 90* yesterday, which was too much, but it’s back down to the 70’s now. More importantly there has been less wind than usual, so the trees are still glowing. I made myself a leaf crown today, AND I wore it all over town!
Susanna Hill’s 4th Halloweensie Contest rules: write a 100 word or less (mine weighs in at 88) Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words pumpkin, broomstick, and creak.
Too Big for His Boots
“I want a broomstick,” said the cat.
“And, just like yours, a wide brim hat.
I’ll take a pair of pointy boots,
A nighty owl that glares and hoots,
One pumpkin cut to grin that glows,
Two warts like those that itch your nose,
Three blackened crows with crooked beaks,
A chair that rocks with cricks and creaks,…”
That cat! He carried on, and on,
‘Til Witch stood up and freed a yawn.
She waved her wand then thrice she spat.
“It’s not your birthday, silly cat!”
