Spastic and Spoopy – #OctoberWriting #OctPoWriMo #poetry


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

There was something odd, on this moonlit night

I couldn’t figure it out, but it gave me a fright

The moon in the sky, a very curious shape

It looked like an egg, or maybe even a grape

When up in the tree, I saw an eerie red glow

Twas a gem, like a ruby, held on by a toe

The toe was attached to a spoopy old thing

Half bat and half bird, and it started to sing

I covered my ears, couldn’t handle the sound

Stepped back, lost my balance, fell to the ground

Looked up at this creature, as he laughed at me

How dare he do that, when he’s up in my tree?

Then it dawned on me, why the moon was strange

It wasn’t the moon, someone made an exchange

It was an egg, hatched an extraterrestrial being

I saw all I wanted, turned and ran, quickly fleeing

The Calling ~ #poetry #angel


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Shadows trace the figure
Cast upon an empty sea
She stands against
The pallid sky
A blended symphony

Light against the muted tones
It draws her ever near
Calling her back
Into the realm
She slowly disappears

The sun begins to shimmer
Casting an ethereal glow
She glimmers within
The circle of her halo

The Void – #etheree #PoetryChallenge


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

For this week’s challenge, Colleen has chosen Ghost and Hollow as the prompts.  But there’s a catch!! #SynonymsOnly!  Rules can be found at the link below!  Have fun!

Are restless
Tonight, they howl
With the wind, blowing
Like a banshee, screaming
Into space, they float away
Bringing them closer to nothing
They disappear in the emptiness
Spectral beings, ever lost, in the void
