A Spooky Celebration

Far off in a field, in central Illinois,
there lies a patch of pumpkins of the magical kind.



 No one knows where they come from;
they appear every October, yet no one ever plants a seed.

Rare in nature is the person who finds this field. 
It is said that only those with a touch of magick in their hearts can find this place. 
As you walks delicately through the vines,
you cannot help but feel a slight tremor upon nearing this particular pumpkin:


Stooping down to take a peek, you hear the faint humming of a song...

What could that be?

A party? A celebration?

A wedding!

The guests are arriving:



The bouquet is prepared:


Guests are seated:


The "best men" take their places:


 And now, the moment they've all been waiting for....


Let the celebration begin!

But first, a wedding blessing:

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
~Gaelic Wedding Blessing
But just as the guests begin to mingle and toast...

A dark cloud floats above

A sharp wind whisks her veil...

A scarecrow runs by

And it all disappears.

You are left all alone.

In a field by yourself.



But sometimes at night,

when you lie in your bed,

you wonder what happened,

what dreams did they have?
As you drift off to sleep,

you can see it unfold.

The happiest of lives,

Where two

Became five.
