Whimsical Wednesday - 12 October 2011


Who dares to walk across my bridge at midnight?

I swallowed at the sight

Of such a strange delight
Who are those funny creatures?
Both with such silly-dilly features

Did somebody scream “tumblr?”

But there's nobody else in sight.
I was spellbound in secret silence
It just made no sense....
Oops, I nearly took a tumble
into the river Zumbler....
Just seeing their arms dangling
It sent a chill crawling
Up and down my spine
I’m sure anyone else would whine
At this silly sight
Alone out here tonight
At half past midnight….

Thank you for stopping by another October post of Whimsical Wednesday and if you care to share one of your own or just want to view more go here

Perfect for this month. I'm already anxious to see the little trick or treaters in the neighborhood!

JJ, good name for them JJ!

Snowcatcher, I know, except this year I'll be at Disney Land with my daughter and grandbaby it will be a new and exciting Halloween this year! Hope hubby doesn't run out of candy!

Cloudia, thanks, I didn't want them to appear to scary! Delightful is just the right word!

I half expected to see a troll under that bridge! You are a wonderful illustrator, Karen!

Karen have you, or do you, write children's books? If you don't you should, you could also draw your own illustrations. Another cute post... now I'm going to bed, well maybe after one more blog visit. ;-)
