October Nights

The moon is full and golden

Spirits awake, become emboldened

Leaves and mists swirl about

Foot steps echo down the street

Even so, it seemed that they were already tasting the atmosphere for themselves and their reactions could be read on their faces, from what looked like disgust through to delight.

The cave is a low, two-pronged shaft at the base of a cliff. It is an uncomfortable crawl to get inside, as years of fallen stones line the passageways that disappear into the darkness; we would not ask them to enter.

Leap of Faith .

White

Water

Flowing fast

Suicidal

It’s a leap of faith.

Nature’s blind to danger

Where mists rise to veil the view.

Running leaping in a mad dash.

From it’s source to sea and back again

Just like human life but with much less fuss .

Tired out an old soul

No longer scary or mean

Eons of magic

So much knowledge to impart

Scary of face, kind heart.

Song Lyric Sunday. Trains.

This week Jim Adams at Newepiauthor has set us the prompt of Trains for our Song Lyric Sunday.

So I have chose Mathew and Son by the then Cat Stevens. It a brilliant song about life and it’s treadmill. It mentions the 8.30 train so I think it fits the bill.

Cat Stevens now known as Yusuf Islam.

And if the link is a little tenuous here is the last train to Clarksville by the Monkeys. Oh! I loved the Monkeys.

The Monkeys.
