The hallows moon was orange,
a popcorn ball surprise
floating in blue cider
with dawn hard in her eyes.
The clouds were secret-keepers
that knit up all the spaces
with merle-snarled fishscale detail,
chainmail veils for silent creepers
come on the comet's tail,
fat things with bony faces
from the fence rail.
55 things that might go bump in the night for the g-man
Late but here, my insomniac's take on the full halloween moon above the haunted cowyard this morning.
Process notes: merle, or blue merle, is a bluish grey color, often used to describe the speckled coats of collies or other dogs.
