An October Evening

An October Evening(1).jpg

Jack-o’-lantern

There is a shadow in the glass, A spirit in the candlelight.

There is a ghoul’s sneer in the night, A specter on the window sash.

We are not alone in this room!  In the jack-o’-lantern’s dim glow

Burns a hint of impending doom.  Does he know something we don’t know?

Sidewalk Masterpiece

Sidewalk Masterpiece

I saw a little girl in the store the other day, pleading her mother for one of those big buckets of sidewalk chalk and it reminded me of all the sidewalk art I used to do with my own daughter.  When she was very small we lived in a neighborhood where we had sidewalks and plenty of driveway space for her to scribble out masterpiece after masterpiece with those glorious fat sticks of chalk.

When I was little, sidewalk chalk wasn’t that common…the only chalk I remember was in school. The coveted predecessor to that chalk was the big, 64 count box of Crayola crayons…you know, the one with the sharpener in the box. Oh, it was a glorious thing to behold.  The mother did, indeed, get that bucket of chalk for that little girl and I was glad for it.

One day she will look back and wistfully long for the day that she sat on the warm pavement with her little girl and drew colorful stick figures and rainbows!
