Example

In All-Hallows-Eve by Dalene Davies June 7, 2013

Thump! Thump! Thump! I heard the beat off
in the distance.  I thought it
was a heart beat!  Then I listened harder and found
it was mine! Running, I tried
hard not to lose my balance.
I was trying to get
away.  Each time I looked
back, I could feel them getting
closer. Breathing hard I tried to get my
body to get into rhyme
with my mind.  It was not
easy.  My brain was running
faster then my body, or at
least that was how it felt.  The
words were getting louder
now.  I could feel the tension
rise up in my middle.
My paws were
aching, the hard ground digging into
the slim covers of my paws.
Each time I
slowed to take a peek, the voices
got closer, closer still.
This isn’t working,
I need a place to hide-
to think.  Where to go? 
Snow lightly fell over the path.  Cold
slowly seeping though my body,
air shifting right in front of me.
I looked to my left,
and then to my right,
the dark woods looked even
darker. Midnight glow of All-Hallows-Eve
upon us, maybe just upon me.
I saw a huge tree with
an open area sitting by the path.
