October’s Hallowed Passing

sue's lone pumpkin

Samhain, All Hallow’s Eve,

the day of the departed

finds me


An unfamiliar language

surfaces within my ears upon waking.

I am silent,

my heart fluttering for a moment.

The trumpet


us together

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?

I made it this far and plan to keep going. I believe nature heals the soul. I love to journal, to write, do art, and music. I'm not afraid to tackle tough subjects. Solar-powered & drive hybrid. Trying to do my part. Earned my BA at 53. And, I believe, it's never too late to have a happy childhood.
