Magpie # 38

In tombstone city
All are "created" equal.
Side to side; rich, poor.

Very true, but their lives and memories will be different and live on. Nice take on the prompt this week.

I like the use of 'created' when writing about death. Your words are so true.

Equal at both ends. It's just the bit in the middle, where things are so different.

when we noticed were my father was buried and that most of his new neighbors were former bigwigs or relatives of bigwigs..we agreed that he had definitely upgraded to a better neighborhood :)

Halloween

The night is dark
and the goblins are out,
and the witches and black cats
are prowling about.

And costumed creatures
the strangest I've seen,
are knocking on doors
'cause tonight's Halloween!

Happy Halloween dear Rel:-) xox
