The picture helps to explain it is Halloween night. The poem's "Midnight eves sprouted gutters while I slept," could mean scary noises that frighten the night and disturb one's sleep.

Halloween nights are good for kids. Anything can be used to scare them. Those were the innocent nights.

Thanks for sharing.

    thank you. Halloween nights are meant to be scary. You never know what you will find in the daylight.

A very nice one line poem. I love the picture you chose too. I think Halloween is a fun holiday especially for the kids. Keep up the great work writing poems.

Now that is just creepy! What a hoot. Very creative for 7 words and one line. I do wonder if this is a poem you think about or do you just wake up one morning, and dang there it is stuck in your head? good job.

This is a good intro to Halloween. Some houses do look eerier on Halloween.
You chose very appropriate artwork
Good luck in the contest
Keep writing and stay healthy

    Thank you for your review. I used to have a cat we found around Halloween and we named him Spooky. Oh, and he was midnight black...doo doo, doo doo.
reply by dragonpoet on 13-Oct-2021
    No problem. That should have meant bad luck. But it seems it wasn't for both your family and the Spooky.

One simple line that sent shivers up my spine. I have no idea why. Except I have what they call an overactive imagination and I ponder what might be in those gutters. Get those gutters they advertise on t.v. Or better yet: MOVE!

    How perceptive you are. We have been bombarded with those commercials lately, and we have just installed the generic type. However, there aren't any trees near us. Thank you for your fun review.

'Halloween Surprise', is short, succinct and delightfully descriptive. With a minimum of words this talented poet has told it as it is. Good luck with the contest. Please let me know how you get on?

This is a nice one line poem and it brings back memories of leaf-blocked gutters when I was first married and we didn't know about cleaning them before winter. We didn't have gutters on the old houses we grew up in so I can tell you frozen gutters are a mess to clean. We were young but we learned the lesson! Good luck in the contest.
