Halloween Countdown Day 17: The Wind

The Wind

The wind slips down the mountainside on a moonlit night

The wind rustles the last leaves on the almost-bare trees

The wind cuts the corner and spins up tiny dust tornadoes

The wind flickers the candle flame of a grinning jack o’ lantern

The wind creeps under the door and sways a witch’s sooty dress

The wind blows on the fire, making the cauldron boil and bubble

The wind scoots up the chimney, back into the dark night sky

The wind rises over the rooftops and drifts on out of town

The wind crosses the mountains to find another place to play
