Curse of the Night

It’s known that witches fly on wooden brooms Their cackling can be heard from miles away They swoop down hard making you meet your doom Soon you’re engulfed in a fire heightened sway Ravens all come to visit with their croons Cursing your soul more than what’s done today Black cats cross your path scaring you further There’s not much that could make your day darker

    A very spooky write my friend. You capture the feeling of fear well by playing on the dark things that prey upon them. Great write as always.

    Clever and wicked at the same time and that takes appeal and magnitude as it displays your attitude about a special event, and the last line holds the reader on a string.. marvelous, russell!..:) huggs!

    You always have such wonderful things to write about my poems, yet I do not write as easily about or to others. I like this poem. I can hear the cackling and raven wings.
