T'was the Night of Halloween

T’was the night of Halloween and all through the street,
Ghouls and goblins were steering, frightening all they meet.
Spider webs were hung above every door,
Pumpkin heads were carved, the scariest you ever saw.

The children were dressed in their favorite costume,
Behaving their best, at least their parents assume.
All through he night they are seen running about.
“Please give me Candy!” they eagerly shout out.

“Trick or treat” is what you constantly here,
From a distance they can be heard, and then they are near.
Knocking at your door they excitedly await to see,
Exactly how many candies they get… maybe more than three.

The moon shines bright and ghost hover around,
Beetles and spiders are seen crawling in the ground.
A scary scarecrow lurks at every path,
If you are not careful, they might sneaky a stinky fart.

Trough the haunted house the kids eagerly enter,
They do not know what is in store as they reach to the centre.
For in the middle is a zombie’s graveyard,
And getting away from those monsters will be very hard.

The only way to stop them from grabbing at you,
Is to give them one of your candy ... or two.
Only then will you get the chance to scurry away,
And pray they do not find you again… just pray.

Because on Halloween night the best of all treats,
It’s when you come home with a bag full of sweets.
There are enough sweets for them to enjoy for the rest of the year.
However to get them to share is hard, so parents, be aware.

Their eyes are wide and bright from their treasure,
If they could, they would keep it forever.
They play with their pile of chocolates, lollies and sweets,
They play with their pile of sugar gums and gum sheets.

Some even got money to add to their stash,
This is usually put away with a quick dash.
Because all they want to do is munch on something sweet,
Before they have to go to bed and get to sleep.

That Halloween’s night the kids dream,
Not of the vampires, monsters and zombies they have seen,
They dream of buckets and buckets of sweets,
All tumbling from the sky, falling at their feet.

They dreams of rainbows of skittles and a gingerbread house of cake,
They dream the Gingerbread man saying, “It’s all for you to take.”
On Halloween night the children enjoyed their play,
And they cannot wait again till the next Halloween day.

So they can prepare go again and trick-o-treat at every door,
And see what special treat each house has in store.
They want to meet everyone at the door with the special greet…
“Trick-o-treat money or sweet, give me something good to eat,”

Happy Halloween

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
