Samhain Poetry Challenge: Jane Dougherty Writes

Halloween CD Box Set Cover

This is my first submission to a Jane Dougherty Writes Poetry Challenge.  The theme is Halloween and the form is the ‘Sept’, which consists of 7 lines, each having a precise number of syllables:  1-2-3-4-3-2-1 respectively. Many thanks to Jane Dougherty for her prompt and inspiring opening poems.

I wrote these two verses as I listened to a CD with selections from horror movie soundtracks. When I watch a horror movie or scary television episode, the drama created by the soundtrack captures my attention.

Deep
urgent
bass strumming 
warns danger lurks,
Rain lashed strings
screaming
fright.

Pale 
shadow
figure lurks,
Eerie chimes bend,
Unearthly
bell rings
Gone.
