The Haunted Forest

Written by: Kimberly Palhegyi

Climbing, clawing, teeth grinding, gnawing
bitter seething while breathing rotten air

The path hair raising, amazing and a bit dazing
trees shaking and quaking as if making a dare

Leaves crunching and bunching underneath each footstep
I'm creeping with each move to sneak out of there!

Wind swirling and hurling particles of debris
it keeps howling, scooping and swooping as I head toward my lair

Sudden silence emerges.  There arises a calm at the end of the thicket.
It's Wonderful and inviting with silent moonbeams glow as I stare.
