Daily Prompt: Halloween treats from “And now for something completely different”

 If bloggers had their own Halloween and could go from blog to blog collecting “treats,” what would your blog hand out?


Sweet-tarts.  Those addictive little morsels start out sour and almost unbearable.  Bite into them to find the sweetness.  The result is a luscious blend of sweet and tart, what I like to think of as a more adult, sophisticated treat.

More than just a candy, they are a metaphor for life after loss.  The sweetness comes eventually.   The edge never fully goes away, but it comes palatable, and eventually you realize that the sweet is that much more appreciated because of the tartness that still lingers.


Plus you can string them onto a necklace that you wear and eat.  Which is awesome.
