All Hallow’s Eve

The darkness falls-

leaves crunch under my feet,

as the wind tosses them around the empty street.

The moon begins its ascent,

round and plump and tinged in orange,

A Halloween pumpkin in the sky.

Two cats yowl and moan

and circle each other before lunging-

twisting, biting and clawing as fur flies.

I’m distracted by a chittering sound in the air,

wings beat frantically as they take high flight,

bats swooping between the trees.

It’s almost Halloween.
