Will o' the Wisp

Halloween

It is dark as I walk past the ancient graveyard.  What’s that?  A ball of light floats inches off the ground, silver will of the whisp. My heart beats quicker, my footsteps are rushed.  Noises fill the air.  I turn and scream, for now I see them.

Recoil in fear
Ghosts and goblins tread this eve
The dead walk the earth
The world of spirit and life
Merge into one on this day

This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.  The key words today were “Fright” and “Night”, yet for this special while she is away, we are to only use synonyms.  My Tanka might not be exactly a Tanka, but close enough 😉

Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly Haiku,Tanka and Haibun Challenge 31/10/17. Night Fright.

Now the lovely Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisperer is going to be very busy all of the month of November doing NanoWritMo.

Now, so we can all carry on with the Challenge she has set our prompts for the month.

Today the Prompt for Halloween is FRIGHT & NIGHT.

BUT HERE’S THE CATCH: For the entire month of November, you can’t use the prompt words! You MUST use a synonym!

So without more ado let’s get going.

I walk all alone

Demons snapping at my heels

Scared and with no home

Through the kingdom of the moon

Fear above me swoops and whields.

Her eyes compelled him, he surrendered his soul. When he died his soul was trapped within her red shawl. Look closely you can see his face.

Pumpkin Dreams

On top of the pile

Carve out your smile.

Have a candle burn your gut.

Be sliced scored and cut.

To make the children scream

Every pumpkin’s dream
