Samhain, All Hallow’s Eve,
the day of the departed
An unfamiliar language
surfaces within my ears upon waking.
I am silent,
my heart fluttering for a moment.
bravely honoring whispered shadows
sulking, speaking well into the night.
Journal prompt: Write about Halloween or Samhain or the Day of the Dead. Do you celebrate any of these events? What, if anything, does this time of year signify to you personally?
