HALLOWEEN and Mardi Gras in masquerade

Carnival in Venice wearing masks

Silks and Satins beautifully made

Or dressed as HARLEQUIN in every shade


When we get the invitation ~ Fany Dress

We groan and say "Who can we represent ?"

Elvis ~ Spaceman ~ Micky Minnie Mouse

Politicians from our famous House of Parliament ?


Tarts and Vicars  that's an easy one 

Ghosts and Ghoulies ~ good for Halloween

I never win first prize with my costume on

My Wonky Willy looked quite good in his Irish Green !


Pop Stars ~ Film Stars ~ Kings & Queens and Popes

Big list to choose from ?  It is infinite !

I do try hard each year ~ and raise my hopes

Gorilla suit or Harlequin ? Be all right on the night !


Thanks for visiting ~ Comments welcome ~ Love to all BRIAN XOX


DO you like MASQUERADE PARTIES ~ what's your choice of costume ?  




    I love MASQUERADE PARTIES because I can assume an ALTER EGO and be Elvis or Donald Duck for a night or completely incognito behind a mask ! My favorite is HARLEQUIN because it is so so colorful and like a technicolor ONESIE ! BRIAN XOX

    Very well done are certainly a talented writer...great job


      Thanks JEFF ~ once I settle on a topic the poem seems to write itself ! I do ask my MUSE to provide both rhyme & rhythm to produce a proper poem ! BRIAN

      • Jeff

        Lol....i think my muse has left the building.....a few years ago. But you definitely write some great poems.

          lovely writing.
          why do we need masks when we change our images nonstop...

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Good question SWEETHEART there is truth in your riposte. I have images for work (different on for when I'm teaching Science to the Beauty Therapists rather than the Motor Mechanics !) an image for when I'm visiting my Mum and another one when I'm escorting a Lady ! BUT in essence these are all masks that I wear weak by weak. The masks at the Carnival in Venice and the Mardi Gras may have a more unterior motive ? Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps ? Thanks again for you intuition ~ That's why I love you ! HUGS ~ BRIAN XOX
