#BadMoonRising – Post 31 Featuring Steve Stred

 

Today is the last day of Teri Polen’s wonderfully creepy and fun  Bad Moon Rising event, and folks, I think she saved the perfect author to share with you to wrap things up. This guy writes some scary stuff, if you’re brave enough to give it a go. Head on over to check out author Steve Stred’s post, and you’ll see what I mean.  And I hope you’ve enjoyed  following along with 2021’s Bad Moon Rising as much as I’ve enjoyed sharing it with you!  Until next year, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

#BadMoonRising – Post 29 Featuring Teagan Riordain Geneviene

I know it’s late in the day, but I do hope you can still find time to swing by Bad Moon Rising to visit with Teagan Riordain Geneviene. What a fun post, and I have to say, I don’t know how anyone could be busier than Teagan. See for yourself. You’ll likely be amazed, too!

October Siege

While it’s still in the high 80s and low 90s down here in the Land of Sunshine, I’m in the mood to celebrate fall and Halloween, so here’s an offering from my book, Summer Magic: Poems of Life and Love. Hope you enjoy October Siege!

~~~

October.
The siege begins.
Enemies among us
Everywhere!
With evil grins,
They lurk,
They skulk,
They glare,
Sharp fangs bared.

October.
Hide inside.
Nighttime danger
Everywhere!
With shining eyes,
They menace,
They taunt,
They torment,
Mouths opened wide.

See how they glow!
Deadly, gap-toothed grins
Midst curves of vivid orange!
Silently screaming with devilish glee,
They lounge on nighttime porches,
And march up darkened drives.
Casting yellow light from watchful eyes,
They search for unwary victims,
For slow and easy prey.

Big ones, tall ones,
Skinny ones, or round.
Colored like the fiery sun,
Or the moonlight pallor of alien visitors.
They line up on fence posts,
Stair steps, and windowsills.
Peering out . . . or peering in?
Looking for who?
You!

October.
Watch your step.
They’re back again,
Everywhere!
With wicked intent,
They scheme,
They hunger,
They haunt,
Pumpkins on patrol!

Boo!

#BadMoonRising – Post 23 Featuring Mae Clair

 

I’m really excited to share today’s Bad Moon Rising post because it features my good friend, Penderpal, and fellow Dresdenphile, Mae Clair. You definitely want to check out Mae’s interview Q&A! It will leave you shivering, I pretty much guarantee, and I can also attest to how great her new book is, because I’m reading it right now, and loving every word!
