Pumpkin candles shine
Houses hug wooded forest
“Trick-or-treat,” we yell

Howls follow our tracks
Panic, where to run or hide
Dump your candy! RUN!

Don’t look in their eyes!
Breath warms our necks, chills our blood
Never turn around!

Save us! Save us! NOW!
Screams echo off clutching trees
Home in seven steps

Door opens to warmth
Safely under snug covers
‘Til next Halloween!

Marcia Borell has never encountered an art medium she didn’t like. As she began doing more and more illustration work, she discovered that she loved to pair writing with illustration. That was when she discovered drabbles. These 100-word tales became one of her favorite writing activities. Then along came horrorku and a new love for expressing thoughts where once again every word has to hold its own. Marcia is loving her life journey through writing and art.
