Getting over this darn flu.
Not sure why but crows turn my thoughts to dark undertakers.

Be well!


Seventh chime aft’ midnight
rats’ scurry from the lych gate
toward the Saxon church, my
legs, my legs are full of lead

I Stagger, a low mist suspends
between the tombs of the
long since dead

Waning moonlight shines through
an old leafy oak
where the undertaker is perched
upon a contorted branch
a whirlwind calls my name

"Come home
come home
you’re not to blame.”

Shards of shattered glass
shine scattered across the sky
as my legs give way

I fall
amid vibrant foliage
in to a cold
lifeless open tomb

I take a final glance at the
undertaker and
the killing moon

A great eerie tone to this poem. Feels dreamy, too, as though the protagonist may wake up at any second.

A nicely written tale of doom.

Almost as horrifying as the flu! I hope you are better Andy, it's on both sides of the pond I'm just getting over it too. Stay well.

Great write. The combo of flu and hallucinating thoughts always go together. They produce good poems like this one;) Hope your back to snuff soon!

Love,

Yeah, I'm not a fan of crows. I guess I watched too many scary movies! lol Awesome, chilling write Andy. Hope you feel better soon.
Reviewed by Dawn Anderson
Crows...it brings a smile to my face, because I remember how frightened my son was when he was about six or seven years old of them. He'd come in from playing in our backyard because he said they were sitting in the big oak watching him. Anyway...this is chilling and well written..has a Poe feel to it.Get better soon, Andy!

chillingly effective ...

perhaps the crows flew through your flu ;)
Reviewed by Morgan Merriweather
the flu can make you think about jumping into a tomb....any tomb, you didn't notice your name on the way in did you? - hope all is well . Morgan

Spooky and dark, Andy,
and very well written.

You do capture tangible darkness here, and it does seem inspired ~
But you had better just drown the buggers in tea and get well.
Best Wishes,

Chillingly effective, Andy... ...most apt and timely too considering "All Hallow's Eve" is not that far away. Love and peace to you,

This is a great write, Andy. Well done indeed. Kudos.
Reviewed by Jon Willey
Andy, stay away from the crows. They harbor draconian ways that will doom us all. Send the undertaker away and leave the open lifeless tomb. It was reserved for another. Spooky, eh what. How morbidity rears itself when we are weak. You must never offer challenge to the powers of the "Killing Moon". An entertaining write Andy. Just right for Halloween. Love and peace to you my friend.
