The Halloween Tree

The Halloween Tree

written by: Candice Pierce


Gnarled limbs with branches curling,
Tangled shadows in the night.
Raven perching,
Spider searching,
Silken web for prey to bite.

Twisted wooden fingers reaching,
Bare and bent in eerie gloom.
Full moon glowing,
Chill wind blowing,
Scratching, groaning, sounds of doom.

Unease grows in dismal darkness,
Senses urge the feet to flee.
Blackness lonely,
Knowing only,
Menace lurks within this tree.
