Hallowe'en is near.
My favorite time of year.
Disguising ourselves with masks and costumes.
Making people guess who we are and having them assume.
Getting dressed up every year is fun.
But this year seeing a witch on a scooter,
will make kids run.

The Wicked Witch

Not talkin about you there, but this reminds me of the Wizard Of Oz, when the green-faced witch flew on her broomstick alongside of her flying monkeys. I enjoyed your film-poem Barb!

Smiley face,

My poem won't be as good as yours. See All my poems are about things I remember and what I do now. I don't remember my childhood but I'll try for Amy
