Prompt #78, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

November 1, 2011

Trick or Treat!

We Write Poems:  
Goblins and things that wear a sheet and go bump in the night. Everyone has a Halloween poem up their sleeves, right? Did you go for horror, or did you go for fun? Remember John Carpenter’s sleeper hit movie, Halloween, which got everyone frightened of the bogeyman? So did you write about the man with a mask? Or maybe you’d rather share a pumpkin story? Time now to share your “trick or treat” poem with us!

Thanks again to Miskmask for encouraging this celebration!

Don’t have a poem yet? Perhaps read a few done by others here, be inspired. There’s still plenty of time to discover a poem for yourself!

Leave the links to your poems in the comments of this post, then go visit your fellow writers’ sites and read their work. Remember to leave only positive comments in the spirit of sharing and not critiquing. We look forward to reading your poems!

Please remember to include a link with your blog poem post that links right back to here, this “Post Your Poems Day”, so that others reading your poem can also share in this community poem experience – maybe even someone new to We Write Poems!

If you are new to WWP, please be welcome to look around and read. The full prompt description you can find under “Recent Posts” on the top right of our page.

    This one was written for another spooky-ish prompt… I suppose it will do for this as well: Knock-na-Shee

    Ye spineless spindly bugs,
    Scurry about your watery grave,
    Indulging heart and soul
    You and none will be saved.
    So, let us take “A walk down a darkened path” . Will you walk this path with me? Here, hold my cold boney hand. Ahhh, I love the warmth of your flesh. Yummm!

    Listen! The screech owl has positioned
    himself on a bare branch in front
    of the Rising moon –

    Where he can warn everyone who
    ventures too near the dark woods
    on this night of nights.

      What a very considerate screech owl!

      Fun. I just saw five or six different owls at a bird show recently. Amazing and wonderful creatures.

    For those who read the Sunday Whirl, this was a combined prompt for me…for those of you who don’t, this will be new. 🙂

    Um… a different look at what constitutes a trick or a treat! Grown-ups only!! Amy

    Well, I’ve already got a potential topic for next week … I posted my link on the wrong day (prompt day). Argh. I was wondering why my poem felt so lonely. So … here it is:


  1. Hallow’s Eve « echoes from the silence
  2. Trick… or Treat? « Sharp Little Pencil
  3. We Write Poems Prompt — Trick or Treat | Shiteki Na Usagi
