Hallow's Eve is hours away
all my friends are here to stay
see us float and move around
how many of us have been found?

Penelope, Bonnie and Broom you see
are never far away from me
Winifred keeps the fire low
so flames don't cause the room to glow.

Giggles, that's me! is fading fast
how much longer can I last
hunters come from everywhere
but me I'll tangle up your hair.

Goblins hiding here and there
oh how much more can we bear
see us moving around these halls
untill Hallow's Eve does fall.

/Giggles floats away

Wiggles aloft,
Often gloats.

We will see.

And links up for me!

Bravo GigglesGhost and Lou!
I've set the timer, ready to take the plunge and give this a go.
I don't have a poem, but I can write about Goblin hunting...since I'm currently unable to find any more.

It's a bit intimidating, this exercise. To write, unedited, for 10 minutes, as thoughts pop into your head. It's just occured ackkkkk (SP?) to me that the topic is Goblins but I'm writing about how scarey it is to do this. After all, this is WOW, Women Online Worldwide. What I pen...or key...can be seen by all. Sigh.

There are 336 Goblins out there to be found. They hide very well. Sheesh, this sounds sooooo corny but I'm going to be brave and just keep typing.

/me checks the clock.....dang! 5 minutes and 8 seconds to go!

I've hunted high and low all over these boards. I've even clicked on Avatars thinking they were in disquise. Lou, Tam? It didn't work! lol

What a fun time I've had.....and what a frustrating time I've had. Ok. I think I'm using too many of these>...... whatever they are called.

/me looks at the clock again. Please, oh please! Let the timer go off soon. Think, anniejoan. Think. This is an excercise in creativity. It will get the creative juices flowing.

It must be very difficult to write for real! This is just play. I don't have to make sense or be cleaver or succinct or enlightening. I just have to keep typing until that flippin' flappin' timer goes off!

Maybe it's stuck! Maybe I've really been typing for 20 minutes instead of 10! I sooooo want to get up and check it, but I will be disciplined and trust that it will ring when the time is up.

Topic, anniejoan! Topic!

Ohhhhh thank goodness! Wooooohoooooo! The timer just went off!

Does anyone else feel this way while trying this exercise?

Goblins, Ghosts, Witches with brooms, black cats
Large moon to set, glows bright orange
Children are awaiting till the darkness settles
Special treats are sitting by the door
Adults remembering the excitment of days before
with goblins, ghost, witches with brooms, and black cats come to the door.
Children are now dressed and ready to go out the door, parents in tow
The excitement mounts for both parent and child
Parent memories of goblins past and the child thoughts of how heavy will the bag be of treats.
Many homes will be prepared with sceens of Goblins, ghosts, witches on brooms, black cats on the window sill.
I will greet each child as frighting or as beautiful as they are, looking at the parent with a knowing smile that each one of those golbins, ghost, witches with brooms, black cats will sleep deeper then night before
Now is the time the real goblins, ghost and witches with broom, black cat come out to play, for it the night celebration of All Hallows' Eve!

Hoblins, Goblins, Witches galore,
Pumpkins, Cowboys, Astronauts and more,
Ghosts, At the posts Scarecrow made of straw,
Where oh where did I put the extra candy jar,
Stickers, stars, papers to correct,
While they go around candy to collect.
This is new to me I thought I'd give it a try,
Rhyming words oh no getting
butterflies,
While looking for some Hoblins, Goblins and Ghosts to contain,
Perhaps this is a better way to Use my brain.
So Adios, Sayonara, Sweet dreams, A toast of Hot Apple Cider. Happy Halloween

ty (((( anniejoan )))) (((( to all ))))
Ok another 10min ...
I'm so glad I rediscovered this folder. Just to let each of you know that wander into here that you are unique. Roomies and WOWs and passerbys great to see you stopping by. This is a wonderful outlet to let things out while writing down your thoughts.
Thank you for restarting it again.
So many things have happened so far this year to so many friends that we have met in here. You may not realize it, but in some way, fashion you have touched another person. Most times in a positive way. Showing you care, you listen, you've perhaps been in those shoes before has helped someone that you only know by a nic. Isn't that fascinating that someone you have yet to meet, possible never will was able to comfort you, yell at you to get moving for help, sent you a hug because they felt you needed it. It's unfathomable to think of the people that have been reached. What a wonderful outlet. from Nana's heart to you a Hug to carry you though whatever it is you need the hug for..
