One upon  a dark, cold  Halloween

Monsters grew on the face of a

Most beautiful fairy Queen

At her eyes  they clustered

Magic of black Faye

All souls mustered

The Fairy

Queen to

Save.

She was kind and  gentle,  she was fair

Known for her red eyes and black hair

Dark,sad secrets she must keep

If you knew them you’d weep

She must never love

Due to a curse

Trick or  treat the children love  to play

As dark falls on all hallows day

Knock on doors and run away

Ghosts and  ghouls ask for sweets

What tricks will they play

On you on All

Hallows

Day.

Halloween Eve !

A Witch’s worse nightmare.

Image from Pixabay

It is hard when you’re witch,

Your presence gives polite society an itch.

When you float by in your latest gown

Women scream and men hit the ground.

Now all of the above could be a boon

Were it not Halloween very soon.

It is not my job to please them.

It is enough to make you shout and scream

When your hair looks good on Halloween.

A careless sprite has cleaned my dress

Dabbed away all signs of mess.

No! that really can’t be right,

Looking tidy on All Hallows Eve Night.

To make it worse I just received a call to say

My Vampire friends can’t come and play.

OH! tell me what’s a girl to do

I think I am coming down with flu.

I think I have really lost the plot, that guy over there just told me I look hot!

Look at me, I look like a fairy,

What’s going on, I should be Bloody Scary Mary!

No, I did not think so,

Eek! I just looked in the mirror where did all my attitude go?

What is a self respecting witch to do

Some pesky imp has used all my goo !

There is only one night until Halloween

And I look like a Fairy Queen.

It gets worse, damn, this just is not fair

None of my rags are fit to wear.

They all make me look stunning .

This is the work of evil and cunning

I guess I shall just have to go and hide

Looking like this, the gossip I’ll never survive.

I shall just climb into a box

And dine on pig’s swill and slops.

I just don’t know what I have done

I even crave a little rest in the sun??

Help, this is not right I am a creature of the night.

Some sneaky sprite has put a hex on me.

The only thing I can do is flee.

Halloween, Acrostic Nonet.

Halloween Acrostic Poem.

Hale and hearty ghosts and scary ghouls

Awake October, thems the rules

Lupines greet the harvest moon

Luna rays excite their mood

Over graves mist does swirl

Witche’s cauldrons.

Eperveces

Every

Night.

Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Poetry Challenge #33. Use WINNING as your inspiration this week.

She has a winning way with her, as gentle as Spring as vibrant as Summer.
To come first every season green and verdant or pink in the first flush of bloom.
A winning combination.

#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 294, 10/18/22 #Ekphrastic #PhotoPrompt

WELCOME TO TANKA TUESDAY!

Hello everyone this week our wonderful host and tutor for wordcraft and Tanka Tuesday Colleen said :

“This challenge explores Ekphrastic poetry, inspired by visual art or photographs. Lisa from TaoTalk, provided the photo for this month’s challenge:”

Lisa said she took this image at the Felt Mansion (western Michigan) in 2020. With Halloween just around the corner, the stark imagery in this photo sets a mood. Let’s see if you can capture the mood in your syllabic poetry. Use the photo as your inspiration!

This week I have chosen a Sijo. What is a Sijo?

The Sijo is a Korean form believed to have first been used in the fourteenth century. It is similar in structure to various Japanese forms such as Haiku. As with many forms of poetry, the Sijo became a preferred poetry form of the yangban or ruling class as well as royalty. They were written in Chinese and were originally short songs set to music. The focus of the Sijo is usually nature and contemplation. There are:Three Lines 14 to 16 syllables per line
A total of 44 to 47 syllables for the entire poem.

MONOCHROME

Monochrome light plays upon the water reflecting grayish tones.
Darkling mirrors merge above and below casting an illease.
Nature also reflecting this too as Halloween draws near.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 432 APPLE and Pick.

Haiku Challenge
Ronovanwrite’s

I cheated this week the syllable count is correct but the true elements are not there.

Apple juicy red
So tempting beckons Eve
Pick me, worlds crumble.

Celebrate the joys of Autumn, give thanks for the harvest.
Halloween all souls of the dead rejoice running riot.
Diwali, festival of lights, fireworks in the mists, death and rebirth.

#TankaTuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 293, #SpecificForm: Troiku

WELCOME TO #TANKATUESDAY

Today Colleen has chosen a Troiku for our Specific Form.

The Troiku is a form created by Chèvrefeuille at https://carpediemtroikuworld.blogspot.com/2015/10/welcome.html.

Chèvrefeuille says: “This haiku is the starting verse of the Troiku and is called “the sleigh”. As you maybe know the Troiku is based on the idea of the Russian Troika, a sleigh with three horses. To create “the horses”, you need to use every line of the starting haiku, to start a new haiku with.

I am going to use Autumn as my muse because I love Autumn.

Autumn brings her gifts
Shorter days and cosy nights
Bountiful delights

Autumn brings her gifts
A carpet of russet leaves
We dance among them

Shorter days and cosy nights
Family together
In praise of nature.

Bountiful delights
Thanksgiving and winters store
The best dressed season.
