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.

Being an avid reader throughout my lifetime, I’ve enjoyed the effects that words can have on mood and emotion, and have dabbled in story and poetry writing. Now, semi-retired, I use my blog as my creative writing outlet.
