Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie Challenge

Red candied apple dripping in goo.
Orange carved pumpkins spelling out BOO!
Yellow glowing jack o’lantern’s grin,
Green as the wart on an ugly witch chin!
Blue satin Cinderellas looking for a shoe,
Purple bubbling cauldron of stinky witch brew.
Black is the cat, white ghost in flight,
A rainbow of colors on Halloween night!

Susanna Leonard Hill’s Halloweensie Contest:  Write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children, using the words boo!, candied apple, and jack o’lantern  Your story can be scary, funny or anything in between, poetry or prose, but it will only count for the contest if it includes those 3 words and is 100 words (you can go a little under, but not over!)   Halloweensie – because it’s not very long and it’s for little people.
