I just put the finishing touches on my 5-year-old’s Tyrannosaurus Rex costume (every year it seems I need to engage in a major feat of engineering for his outfits – last year, he went as a biplane!), so I thought I’d share a little something for Halloween.
I hope you like it – and I hope you’ll “check out” Jone MacCulloch’s little home on the web, Check It Out, for all of today’s Poetry Friday links and fun!
I’m not surprised the jack o’lantern
has two glowing eyes.
I’m not surprised its jagged grin
has drawn a dozen flies.
I’m not surprised its hollow head
is blazing like a torch.
I am concerned, however,
that it’s floating off the porch!
