Fred the Legend....Cold October Night..part 2 of 5

Only an illusion ????

Oh the scary things you see on Hallows eve..

The air was unusually cold that October night..as the children set out for a night of fright….

Dressed in their scariest and mysterious garb.. running over driveways and yard after yard….

Their parents had warned them of the legend of Fred..which was the furthest thought in their little head... they were too focused on candy to hear what was said , filling their bags with treats and sweets...

Now what was that about someone named Fred ?

There were Goblins, Pirates, Ghosts and a Nurse,Werewolves and Vampires that gave out a curse.. And of course the Aliens of which there were six…

All screaming out for their bag of treats or tricks…

For those that grew weary and chilled to the bone..

And knew it would be hours before they got home…

Some of the neighbors had set up a table.. With cookies and hot drinks and punch with a ladel

The wind started blowing, lightening lit up the sky…

That’s when they saw it..it was huge and did fly….

What was that they asked..not sure what they saw..

It turned round and round and spun upside down..

When all of a sudden it stopped and just hovered…

That’s when they noticed it opened the dome cover…

Two very large Aliens from outer space did appear…

Come on children it’s time to go home…Bye ya’all…see you all next year….

and not a word was said regarding the legend of little red-haired Fred....

....well my dear friend you write with the wisdom of life on your side and you do something which I try to do with a lot of my writing - you write in such a way that it can appeal to 'children' of all ages - meaning children can understand it on one level and adults can understand it on another level.

hubawesome says the epi-man from a still morning by the lake meaning no wind - and the wind chill when you live by a lake (lol) is everything - lol lol - love watching the daybreak over the lake around 7:00am these days but today is a mix of more cloud than sun

lake erie time 8:12am

epigramman..I love this time of year..watching the old fade away to prepare for the new and unexpected...thank you for your kind words..this last 5 months has been my first attempt at poetry..prior I wrote research articles and two published books...I do love the simple poems though and try to use metaphors 24-7...thanks for stopping by and commenting...have a great debate night...

Hi KJ

Mysterious little guy this Fred. A visit aboard an alien space ship, now that would make a cool Halloween.

Voted up across the board

Sueswan...The best part..their parents don't have to spend $ on a scary costume..this way they have $ to buy gas to travel to Earth for " Hallow's Eve.....remember there were six of them..and with the economy..whoa...here , by the way anyone seen Fred ?

and on Wednesday be sure to look under your bed...thanks for following and comments..
