The Battle of Halloween



PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot

“There’s a war between the witches and wizards today!”

“Sure there is, Tommy.  What is it, too close to Halloween or too much Harry Potter?”

“But look at the sky!”

“I am, and a beautiful sunset it is.”

Mom just didn’t understand.

The sky blazed in glorious black and orange, as the powers silently battled in the clouds.  Tommy watched as the cloud witch on her broomstick with her pointy cap battled the glowing beak-nosed cloud wizard. The wizard’s mouth was wide open, no doubt screaming a spell at the witch.

Tommy knew it would be the best Halloween ever.

      Our minds do funny things to make sense of the world, even if what our minds create makes no sense ;) I agree, Tommy will have a great Halloween full of imagined spooks and monsters.

    Ah, the childhood memories of cloud creature battles. Growing up without television. we found our entertainment in God’s creation. Clouds were afternoon programming. No two shows ever alike. Loved your story, Trent!

    Awesome, Trent! As I am a cloud watcher (travelling as a kid was never boring – as long as there were clouds in the sky) I was intrigued by the photo and applaud you on the perfectly fitting story.

      Thanks, Rochelle. Maybe it isn’t just Tommy with the imagination – reading through the stories so far, am I the only one to see the with on her broomstick and the face in the clouds? With the Halloween colors and theme, I thought everyone would be writing about witches today.
