    A good month for exploring the myths and writing the prose. Nice post, thanks for sharing and reminding me, at least, of the myriad beasts waiting to appear in my stories 👻

    ‘…on the window looking in’ Have you ever seen that classic Scandinavian film (the original)Let the Right One In? if not, it is a treat.
    Loved the scattered effect of the verse too.

    As always, a delight! Love your poem, the visuals and I’m a great fan of chanting so it rounded the post off exquisitely!

    Loved it! I could watch that video over and over – beautiful images and great sound track! We’re heading towards Beltane down here but it always feels like Halloween to me 🙂

  7. I’ve always been disappointed we don’t have an equivalent to Halloween in Australia. Celebrating in the spring/summer just doesn’t seem right. I loved the video. My vampire fix is satisfied, but craves for more…… 🙂

    • Thanks Alyson! It’s funny, I was just telling one of my Aussie friends, I wish Halloween in the US fell at a warmer time of year! Though rightfully it is the summer’s end.

      Glad you liked the video. I post vampire stuff regularly, so stay tuned 🙂

    Although I roll my eyes at people in Facebook groups who claim they are a 245 y/o vampire/witch, I am forever fascinated by vampire lore, fiction, and films. As a Jewish child, I was freaked out that we didn’t have crosses, and asked my parents if a Star of David would repel a vampire just as well! Scariest vampire book: Salem’s Lot. Most interesting vampire book: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.

    Also, thanks for the Baebes musical inclusion in your video. They just don’t get enough press. Those Celtic Woman steal all their thunder I guess….

    Dark blessings..

    • Thanks! I often wonder why more was not made of the Baebes — they are probably the most talented women on the planet!!

      I love Anne Rice’s vampire books. Ironically, crosses are never used in them, haha. Thanks for reading 🙂


  9. Oooh. I like this. To be or not to be a vampire 🙂
