Shedding winters coat
Sowing seeds on bare shoulders

Abundant seasonal growth
With organic antidotes


Awaiting color
To crop under warming sun
With splashes of hope

Time sprung in forward thinking
Full of possibilities

Headless Horseman riding by and things that go bump in the night
After the children are safely tucked in bed their thoughts bring fright
Lightning flashes outside electrifying a grey cloudless sky
Lycanthropy neighbors change forms and are spied barking at the moon
Old skeletons wandering down the streets in broken pieces
Witches brew magic in the cauldron and chant incantations
Earth rotten zombies gathered on the front porch trying to get in
Evil laughter from the Vampire on the corner that licks his lips
Nightmares are well and alive before the child closes his eyes
