Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Tuesday Challenge #Tanka – 31/10 – Fright & Night

Colleen is away now for FIVE weeks, completing #NaNoWriMo… but she’s left her challenges for those weeks… here!

The twist is you have to use her words but as synonyms, not the actual words!

So this week, we have

Fright & Night

Hand, Fear, Despair, Expression, Scared

On All Hallows Eve
All the spooky ghouls come out
Ready to have fun
Strange things begin to happen
Once darkness covers the land

    Oh how do I dread
    Thought of candies
    With razor blades
    The living devils
    Laughing ghoulisly
    At the thought of
    Scores more joining
    The departed tonight
