Join me for some “Haloweensie” Fun! ENJOY!
“Wake up, Little One.” Your long slumber is over. It’s time to roam the neighborhood. We’ll fit right in.
“Let’s go!” Come down from your roost. Spread dark, velvety wings and ready yourself for adventure.
“Soar!” Tonight’s our night. Use your sonar to find the way. Search for something juicy and delicious.
“Dive!” Down, down below. Mingle with the ghouls and ghosts that haunt in their magnificent costumes.
“Rest well, little one.” All this swishing and swooping has made you sleepy.
This sacred eve is over. The sun is ready to rise. Another Halloween has come and gone.

Thanks so,much, Jen!
I love bats! The image of “dark, velvety wings” is lovely. Good luck!
I love bats, too. This is the perfect time of year to watch them fly about.
Maria, did you write “Nighttime Tale” below? What a clever take on bats at Halloween! Believe me, I’d _never_ have thought about a baby bat and its mom. Well done! Jetta
Thanks for sharing, and letting everyone know about the contest.
Yes, Jetta. I was what I wrote for the Halloweensie Contest. It came to me when I was with a group of school children. Funny where our inspiration comes from!
Great Halloween story of little bats. For little bat people. On halloween.
Happy Halloween, Maria! 🙂
Thanks so much!
Lovely imagery 🙂 Good luck to you!
Thanks. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
I love the imagery. I’ll be on the lookout for bats on Halloween. 🙂
Thanks, Stacy. Glad you enjoyed it. I’m looking out for bats, too.
I’m not a really big fan of bats, but I really enjoyed this little bat tale!
I think about all the critters that bats eat — that’s what makes me like them!
Love this Halloween tale from the little bat’s perspective! I bet it’s his favorite night of the year 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in the Halloweensie fun, Maria!
Awww… this made my day. Glad you liked it.
Ooooh…dark velvety…beautiful visual with that…and I’m not even a fan of bats, Maria. 🙂 Great to hear the POV of an animal not usually found in children’s stories…I loved it!
Thanks. It’s funny how stories get created. That,wasn’t where I was going with it, but that’s where I ended up.
