Halloween Musings

A Twitter friend asked that I write a happy poem for today, Halloween. Well here is my attempt at a happy poem inspired by a photo of Paulette Goddard dressed as a cat for Halloween…

Ever since a teen
Never been keen
About Halloween

A ravishing brunette
Now I love it, you bet

Time forever free
A gaze of expectation
Prelude to a kiss

A Vivian Leigh Tanka

Blue eyes become green
Scarlet ribbon of sadness
Flickering beauty
Writ large on the silver screen
Nitrate secrets, passions burn
