A Chilly Night
Pumpkins grow faces and
skeletons adorn
unusual places.
The chill may be
in the air or
from the scare of
a story I've read.
Who's there?
I swear I felt a tap
on the shoulder.
Did a ghost
get that close or
was I just frightened
 by my own shadow?
What gives you a chill? When you come up with the answer, leave a link to it on the Wordsmith Studio Creative Prompt blog post. Thanks to Carol Early Cooney for this week's prompt-Chill.

  1. I love your shadowy figure and poem, too.

    1. Thanks, Letty. A spur of the moment idea as I noticed my shadow during a walk.
