Submitted for Sunday Photo Fiction


The Assignment: The idea of Photo Fiction is write a story of around 100-200 words (which is also called Flash Fiction) based on a photo as a prompt. In this particular photo fiction, the story must be based on the photo below.  To read stories written by others, click on the links tool below.  It dawned on my today that I have been participating in this challenge for more than a year.  I decided to create an anthology of these stories which you can access from a menu at the top of my page.

This week I am taking a break from my serial story to create a Halloween themed post.

Haikus for Halloween

Late Autumn chilled air
Costumed children fill the streets
Play tricks for a treat

It’s all hallows eve
Ghost and ghouls come out tonight
Their goal, to give fright

Stirring the caldron
Witches dance in the coven
Chanting spells laughing

At the costume ball
Dance with mystery partners
Unmasked at Midnight

It’s time for giving
Trick or Treat for UNICEF
Drop coins in the box

Bobbing for apples
Hands tied behind your back
Dunk head, capture the prize

The house is haunted
Do you dare to enter here?
Ghostly visitors

Carve scary pumpkins
Jack-o-lantern’s evil grin
His glow lights the night
