Wow! It’s been a year since I posted. Told you it’s not a blog! That said, I couldn’t resist the seasonal challenge from Susanna Leonard Hill this year. That’s right! It’s Halloweensie time! Be sure to check out the contest rules and join in the fun if your fingers are feeling spooky or silly or just otherwise inspired.
Here we go …
On Halloween night, when Mira goes looking for mischief, Moon slices a fresh trail into the woods.
Leaves flutter forward. Mira follows to a bent bone house, whose hollows glow warm and bright, and knocks.
She steps inside.
A fire pops, a cauldron bubbles, but the bare frame rattles.
“I can fix that.”
Mira gathers cobwebs to stir with memories and dreams. She paints the silky potion from joint to joint until every bone stretches and gleams.
The bone house stands.
It’s time to go haunting.
