Fright Night


Blue is a calming colour, as everybody knows.
It's effect is always gentle and serene.
Yet here we see the colour in quite a different guise!
Have you ever seen a more blood-chilling scene?
Clouds, the moon, a deep blue sky;
What could be more benign?
But the hideous face within the clouds
Detracts from the moon's clear shine.
And the clouds themselves are sinuous;
More like hands that clutch and claw!
A true depiction of nightmare;
The 'best' I ever saw.
I have no desire to read the book;
It's not my sort of read.
But I admire the artist's skill
Very much indeed.



I'm never never tardy.
I'm always right on time.
I've got a date!
I can't be late!
So this is a very short rhyme!

I agree with you; I wouldn't choose to read this book either!

Happy Blue Monday, Brenda.

That is definitely not my kind of reading. That picture would turn you off. Very scary looking, but made a nice showing for blue day.
