Poem # 8

REVIVAL

~

A nagging pain, like cotton wool, muffles my thoughts

My head hurts, just need to close my eyes

Maybe a breath of fresh, fall air will ease my senses

Sunny, mid-morning yellow, surrounded by cool, blue skies

Listening to the silence of the falling leaves

One, two, three, then more

They touch me like soft butterflies

Raining down in golden drops of autumn

A crispy carpet at my feet, I smile as I hear my cat

Pouncing and leaping to catch the falling curiosities

My tree laughs and smiles, as a soft breeze tickles her branches

She shakes herself, releasing her finery for us to enjoy

We have nothing to fear, as winter comes near…

Her words are felt in my soul

As I open my eyes, looking upward,

I am thankful for this gorgeous fall day,

And find my pain gone away

Poem # 7

LOST IN MY NIGHTMARE

~

In the obsidian midnight of my dreams

Nothing, no nothing, is as it seems

The deepest abyss now rules my soul

Insanity gathers to take it’s toll

Mysterious and strange, gravedigger dark

Undertaking souls…leaving it’s mark

Entombed in it’s ebony, inky deeps

Forever and ever, my spirit weeps

The fractures keep probing…my psyche desolate

A crystalline human, myself incarnate

I exist in dimensions, my aura will show

A higher vibration, an awareness to know

I swear my senses are not corrupt

Open my eyes…wake up, wake up

Lost in my nightmare, I’m not sane

I stare at nothingness, I’ll take the blame

My love for black…it’s manifestations

Color my world, in all incantations

Poem # 6

HALLOWEEN HAPPINESS

~

Halloween comes but once a year

It is my favorite day.

Instead of being melancholy,

Let’s chase the clouds away.

I’ll drizzle caramel on crisp, red apples,

And add rainbow sprinkles, too.

I’ll make enough for all of us,

And certainly for you.

We’ll decorate with orange and black,

And, if it rains, who cares?

We’ll grab our sack,

And not look back,

As we go on down the stairs.

You’ll paint your face,

Wear satin and lace…

A pretty princess you will be.

And I will be a cute, funny bunny…

Hopping around for all to see.

Then when we get home,

And the night is ’bout gone,

We’ll relive all the fun we had.

We’ll eat lots of candy,

And feel real dandy…

That we didn’t have time to be sad.

SKELETON

Skeleton

Bones together

Rattling, dancing, shivering

A scary horror show

Skinless

Poem # 4

ALL HALLOWS’ EVE

~

Saints and sinners,

And rank beginners,

Pretend they don’t believe.

Yet, spirits and ghosts

Will be their hosts,

For tonight is All Hallows’ Eve.

Poem # 3

“TRICK OR TREAT’

~

Cider mulled,

Pumpkins hulled,

Grinning skulls abound…

The night is dandy

To hand out candy,

To little monsters coming ’round.

Countdown to Halloween – Day 1

Countdown to Halloween – Day 1

***

If you haven’t guessed by now, I love Halloween! I love the autumn days, with the fall colors of orange, yellow, and rust, and the cooler temperatures. All that puts me in a good mood.

In the past few years I’ve taken part in some October blog challenges, such as October Poetry Writing Month ‘Octpowrimo”, and the ’31 Days of Halloween’, but wasn’t wanting to formally sign up to do one, and the other isn’t being held this year.

Looking back over my past posts, I’ve got a lot of fun poems about Halloween, and for real, hardly anyone came by to read them, as I didn’t have many readers back then.  So, I’m going to re- post them now. They will be sort of new to me again, too, as I haven’t gone back to look at them in a very long time. Also, I’ll show off my painted rocks again (I know some of you saw these last year).

Anyway, hope you’ll enjoy my informal countdown to Halloween! 🙂

“Where Do They Go?”

~

Bats and cats,

Silk top hats…

Where do the goblins go?

Around and about,

Inside and out…

They’re everywhere, don’t you know.

31 Days of Halloween – Costume

Yesterday was the final day of the Halloween Challenge for this year. I’ve had fun painting all the rocks, and hope you enjoyed seeing them.

The last prompt to use was ‘costume’. I was busy with Halloween things, so never got this last one posted, but here it is. 🙂
