the-31-days-of-october-challenge: Night of the Toy

mount locust toys april 27

Toys sitting on a table

guarding an old house

it is quiet now

only the movement of a mouse


The sun sets

the moon shines bright

the toys come alive

searching in the night


Given the power

to read the soul

as the toys touch the guests

their stories unfold


Those that are good

charitable and kind

a reward of a good dream

occupies their minds


Those that are evil

who steal life forces

have lucid nightmares

over their life choices


In the morning

as each guest awakes

the toys have left a gift

either joy or heartache


The toys have returned

to each one’s original place

waiting for the next guest

to claim a quiet space
