A Rather Strange Gathering.....
Let me take you with me,
On a little journey,
Forward in time,
To the very last day of October,
Several spins of little Hobbits Time Turner should do the trick.... *
* * *
October 31st, All Hallows Eve otherwise known as Halloween, when strange happenings can take place.
Sometimes right under your own nose.
In the half light, a buttery milk moon glowed above the trees.
Moon shadows and the gentle rustlings of leaves on the path hid whisperings in the stillness.
Was that hushed talk near by.
I Peeped through the shed keyhole, but saw nothing.
Did the key hole remarkably resemble an owls eye? Or was this strange night playing tricks?
I walked around the back of the shed and look what I saw!....
I crept closer keeping in the shadows, so as not to be seen.
There were creatures, a meeting, a party? Some kind of gathering.
Fairy folk of of old...
And a hare that was reading a book....
On the table there were bottles with what looked like potions or lotions.
Leaves and seeds and berries that were as red as cherries.
As I watched the hare began to read from the book....
A charm, an incantation, enchantment or spell....
It seemed to be directed at the horse chestnut!?
Just at the moment when things began to take on a strange illuminating glow...
I stepped back onto a twig that snapped!
I was heard and the spell was broken.
I'm sure they didn't see me as I ran away quickly, but they looked.
I know they did, as I felt them watching.
Alchemists?... but what were they up to?
As I walked back up the garden path in the moonlight. I spun the time turner once more, forward one hour.
And look what was waiting on my doorstep when I got there...
Hmmm... Could this have once been a horse chestnut do you suppose? ;)
(Why not go and have some fun reading more Halloween posts. A full list of everyone taking part in this event is.......... here)
