words are spider, ghost,scarecrow,snake and cat, The cat was chasing a snake under the scarecrow I walked into the field,dodging spider webs galore I often wondered if ghosts visited would I know? The cat stopped and I wondered whats in store? The snake was caught in a spider web how odd The cat hissed,snake lunged and I threw a sod Mr snake decided we were too much and left Picking up the silly cat I cannot say I was bereft,. So the scarecrow stood alone in the field I wondered how many ghosts were revealed Old farmers plowing the dusty fields Old crops waiting oh the big yields. Just because we see no ghosts means nothing Perhaps we hear old sounds, memories bring The past becomes a living thing One original poetry challenge and graphic by P Hatley copyrighted 2016

The past is good to think about and with Halloween coming up this is a good story to do.

I loved the idea of a scarecrow watching the ghosts of crops and farmers past! Lovely use of the words!
