Catching the Darkness

The bats that fly Beyond the rooftops Catch the darkness The skeletons romp Deceased on the ground All Hallows Eve With pumpkins all lit An evil likeness The witch’s broom Sweeps up majestic heights She lives for the dark Emptiness overcomes The front porch looms A boiling cauldron With a devilish potion At Halloween
Russell Sivey

    I especially liked in this one, Russell, the metaphor of the witch sweeping majestic heights on her broom!!
