Monsters Are Real

I sit up in bed

As click clacking claws cross the floor

A rumble grumble

And shadows swirling by the door.


Under the covers

Thumping my heart beats in my head,

My eyes are closed tight

Something slithers under the bed.


I have just one chance

I grip my trick-or-treat bag tight

Throw down my candy

As I leap with all of my might.


You may laugh at me

But monsters are real I must warn

For here is my proof:

It ate all of the candy corn!

I am a school teacher and an author. I like to write picture books, middle grade, science fiction and short stories. I live in Alaska and I love history, so those two things often influence my creative writing.
