This is my entry for Kat Myrman‘s Twittering Tales.

SILENCE.

There’s no peace since the ravens arrived, crawing and whirling around the roof.

The day they began to roost was the day the Ents came.Trees with arms and voices.

Surly it couldn’t get any worse?

Then the grumbling pumpkin turned up in a box of gourds. I’ve not slept in months.

Autumn Tanka.

Magic entwines me

As leaves fall softly around

Gold and red colours

Summer’s spirit invades me

As Autumn bewitches all.

Scary October 23

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is about Nightmares.

When sleep deserts you reason is not far behind.

Panic moves in, and it’s far from kind.

With sanity fleeing, taking sense in its path

It’s like a car crash, a bad aftermath!

Darkness creeps and confusion reins

You can smell the fear like dirty drains.

Open a window and breathe in the night

Calm yourself now there is no need for flight.

Look up to the stars they are laughing at you

They’ve seen night horrors before in fact nothing is new.

The moon and the stars burn with ancient light

Oblivious of you with no care for your plight.

The night is an abandoned tunnel damp and dark.

Shadowy and cold echoing to the sound of a vicious dog’s bark.

The climb is steep and narrow there is no rest

You slip and stumble blindly hoping for the best.

Where is the comfort where is the light

When will there be an end to this endless night.
