Happy Halloween! – welcome to Ninemile house grave yard, a place of rest OR is it ?

I few weeks back I visited this old Graveyard at Nine mile house, County Tipperary.

Halloween 7

This place just has to be one of the most atmospheric Grave yards in the local area. It is full of very old graves and the remains of an old chapel who’s insides have been used as the location of some graves dating from the 1800’s.

This is a place of rest however and a very peaceful location, But on Halloween night, well I just wonder ? ?

Halloween 6

For anyone who has been following my blog, they will know I love poetry, well last night I had a go at my own poem for Halloween!

A poem for Halloween

There is nothing in the dark…

Don’t run to the light, Run towards the night.
For ever fearing the Dark .

Don’t turn on a lights, Shining a torch into the blackness.

There is nothing in the Dark, No monsters to fear.

Nothing hiding in the blackness.

No possessions
No ghosts
No evil demons
No open graves
No devils to consume your soul
No vampires
No zombies
No omen of death
No!

Don’t look towards the stars, Fires of the heavens.
Hoping forever to be alive.

Don’t fear the blackness of the woods at night.

There is nothing in the dark,
nothing that is not just asleep in the day
and awake at night.

It is not the dark you should fear,
Fear the light.

In the dark there is rest,

A peace of your mind.

There is nothing in the dark but rest and a lack of light !
