Flying Witches

Our searching eyes, and how they spy, Hunting children from the sky Our hungry hearts, for blood doth cry! To quench our throats long parched and dry O'er many Moons have read our runes Cursed our Foes to meet their doom Killed the swine atop our brooms- And sent the youth to early tombs EVERYTHING HALLOWEEN CONTEST ENTRY 8-25-13 **Halloween contest entry also for Skat (Is it considered bad form to enter the same poem for the same theme?) -JustThatArchaicPoet

Love how you did witch theme for the contest. It's a great poem and congrats to you. People always enter old poems in contests. But be careful not to ever give the same one to the same judge. haha!! (though I think I have done it once or twice to PD)

Chan This is a very clever and unique write. You give the reader all kinds chills and scariness the more they read. Nice job Glad you could relate to my Mirror Image poem. I just don't like people judging others before knowing them. Hugs

Oh my! :) I really love the contemporary way you wrote this. I wish more people still wrote this way.

It never even occurred to me that it had a contemporary feel to it; that's why I love my readers' interpretations. It helps me understand my own writing. Thanks for this review, April :)
