Sci fi/Fantasy image byGus Kosmopoulos
In the darkness of the pumpkin patch Outside the cemetery gates The moonlight danced with the shadows For it was getting late When out burst a fairy From the leaves on the ground It seemed she was excited For she exclaimed what she found “It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!” She fervently cried. “It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween! There’s no need to hide!” For everyone knows At this time of the year The pumpkins become restless Shake their old confines clear The fairy shone quite prettily As she flew above their heads She hovered very close And rapped them out of bed She waited and waited In the dead flower bed She picked apart petals Such a nice one to the dead! When all so suddenly A voice behind her shouted, “Hey, my wife left those! Even if they’re dead and rotted!” The souls of the dead Had come to her home Inside of the pumpkins, They were free to roam They danced all night And laughed ‘till the morn’ But their time was now up, To let go of this form The fairy waved good-bye And said farewells to her friends Next year she’d see them again Coming out of their lifelong beds. Elfwood wouldn't allow me to publish the full version of this which included this poem on both sides, so if you'd like to see if the full version, which I think looks a bit better, take a look at my Deviant Art account. That'll lead yah right to it. :) I had fun with this. There's some things I could fix, but you know what? I'm right happy with this. Colouring over my sketchy lines gives a this piece a nice look to me. I love colouring over roughness. :D enjoy, and happy Halloween! haha poem and image © Gus Kosmopoulos 2006.
