Register yourself (with your name and the link to your potluck entry) using InLinkz below, and leave a comment with a pointer to your post! It would be great if you could link back to us on your blog!!! Once you are done with this, visit other participants (at least 6), read their entries, comment, AND ENJOY!!! So let your imagination soar in the darkness and the graveyards... write on! Of course, you can always submit any poem of your choice as well...
Remember: Every week, InLinkz will be up on Sunday, at 8pm (CDT), and will stay open till Wednesday, 8am (CDT). So you will have 60 hours to share your poem with us...COOL huh?!! Also, if you aren't new to Poetry Potluck, please note that we may not send you weekly reminders.

Flash Forward!! After a sinful week, we shall once again get back to being nice. So, the theme for next week will be "Fortresses, Buildings and Monuments".. You will have a week to prepare your poem for this theme.. :) And if you are unable to submit a poem ON the theme, relax... Send in an older poem you would love to share with us...
And now, LET'S GET STARTED with this week's potluck!!!! Enjoy the VIDEO here and let those creative bloody spirits flow!!! Thanks for joining in and supporting your fellow poets and our favorite Poetry Potluck!!!
ALL HALLOWS EVE
‘Twas all Hallows eve, and all through the house
Every creature was stirring, even our pet mouse
Oh the pumpkins were carved with very great care
In the hope that trick-or-treaters soon would be there
The children were agitated, not one in his bed
As visions of sweet treats danced in their heads
Dad and I in our costumes and me with my cap
Had settled by the door listening for the first rap
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
We sprang to our feet to check on the matter
We threw open the door to offer our sweet stash
While witches flew by, all glitter and flash
And the moon on the rise and the dark ground below
Gave lustre and bluster to ghosts on the go
Then what to our startled eyes should appear,
But a miniature ballerina among goblins, one bear
Now, Alice! Now Ernie! Now Jimmy! Now Chris!
Come little Tony, big Brandy, and Trish
To the top of the stairs, don’t any one fall …
Now dash away dash away dash away all
