Nighttime Cup

The full moon escalates the fears of the night Leaving shadows from the tall frightening trees Branches reaching out to the tombstones of fright Fear envelopes by what people sure believes The bats scare, ravens bring fear, and moon heightens Everything in sight the moon laughs and brightens As the night cools things down, the moon warms it up Darkness never fully wins the nighttime cup

    I enjoyed your symbolism of a nighttime cup in this one, Russell.

    A scary Halloween rispetto. What will you write about next week? You should publish a book of all your Halloween poems.

    the imagery really drew me into the piece through tone, metaphor and especially the strong atmosphere coming through the lines. Such a wonderful, smooth piece, russell... impressed my friend!,,:) huggs

    No need competing with the night, it will always win in the end. At least until the morning light sends the Demons and Vampires packing. Thanks for the veining Chill, if I can't sleep I will blame it on you
