Hoping for a Spooky autumn...

Just requested the last week of October for time off. It's a nice lead up to Halloween that Saturday. I want to see the scariest, most haunted, "Ghost Hunters would never go there" destinations.

I will grab my flashlight, a digital recorder and go exploring to see what goes bumpity-bump in the night...

Any suggestions on places to poke my nose around are welcome. I want places with some hardcore hauntings attached to them, places that have some history. I know of several but I'm open to hearing about more.

Time to start planning a costume for the big day. You will NEVER see me dressed as an M&M, that's for sure. I take this time of year very seriously. Halloween is the pinnacle event of the year!

Flame and Bone

When I was made from fire
Poured into the tender vessel of caution
That keeps my smoke from rising
Quickly did I discover that apart from crisp drizzles or falling snow
The world chilled my touched
Walking the narrow cornered gap between girders and cut stone
One learns to tuck his shoulders in or risk
Jostling a neighbor passing by rapt with want
For a clear path without the distraction
Of another man's boiling eyes
The tip of a finger
That oldest of all weapons
Grown deadlier and pristine in its invention
Gathers a mote of a cinder on its bare flesh
And turns pondering how best to scratch the impious itch
Prying open the tender seam
Where the oil of thought dews
Offering a new wick to ignite
Squirming alive as a salamander of mischief
That yearns for a taste of air it is so ready to devour
The steam of breath betrays me
Before the glint of orange spreads
In popping bright waves
Eroding the fibers feeding it
Leaving naught but ash
As my shell of quietude falls away
