The Sky Larked Moon

Blue black was the night
a cat clawed moon fright
larked against the sullen sky
no blow to bemoan
no flight to atone
and so no stars were on high.

The air leaden, gray,
weak of shadow's play
feline howls, growl, harmonized
uncovered shivers
bodies that quiver 
by a claw moon undisguised.

    This was so different, Debbie; you have that rare gift of finding some obscure kernel in the contest theme and turning it into a knock out winning poem. Made me think of Halloween. Congratulations on your top spot.

    This could have fit Charlotte's Dark Poetry contest, I think. I felt like something was about to jump out of the shadows. Cheers, Roy

    Dear Deb, Very strong emotions in this poem. I love the tone of darkness and a mystic "claw moon." Awesome, Hon! (Shadow's always kind to me. I feel privileged to enter her contest, just as I enter yours because she seems to recognize the effort that goes into writing and judges without favoritism. You do the same, dear. Love you, Carolyn

    Debbie, you're a wordsmith my friend.. So very impressive!

    "No flight to atone" I absolutely adore what you do with words in every poem! I learned the word Atonement in the Bible when I was a small child. Along with Excrement in the Privy! ~ Some of my first literacy memories. No joke!

    This one brought to mind Michael Jackson's thriller. I can almost hear Vincent price reading it. I also dropped by to say thanks for choosing my poem in your contest. I am still curious to hear your thoughts on my changes to my blitz poem.
