Witches Brew

31 of 31 OctPoWriMo


Short days and long nights
I’ve gathered ingredients
It’s time to cast spells
Combine tongue, eye, tooth, ear, spleen
Chant a Happy Halloween

~ Tanka

I’d like to send a special shout out to my fellow October Poetry writers for their encouragement, support, expertise, and for being my source of inspiration! And as always, I appreciate each and every one of my devoted followers – every view, like and comment fills me with gratitude and gives me reason to continue. 🙂





White on white translucent black capes
Back on the rack
Bela lugosi’s dead
The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been bled
Red velvet lines the black box
Bela lugosi’s dead
Undead undead undead
The virginal brides file past his tomb
Strewn with time’s dead flowers
Bereft in deathly bloom
Alone in a darkened room
The count
Bela logosi’s dead
Undead undead undead

Let’s Play (#HalloweenChallenge)

Here’s my entry for the Halloween Challenge being hosted by the multi-talented Der Erzahler. If you haven’t visited his site you should cause you’re really missing out. And if you head over there now you can see works submitted for the challenge by other great writers and poets. Enjoy! xoxo
