a walk to the pear tree in late october

Here’s a poem I’ve written for Halloween week on Chef’s Kiss!

The light from a misty autumn moon,

Gives the graveyard an eerie glow.

Skeletal trees cast creepy shadows,

That linger on mossy headstones.

Unforgiving is the chilly air;

Slicing viciously through bare flesh.

Footsteps resonate silent streets,

A siren shrieks by like a banshee.

The creaking church stands solitary,

Like a house of horror, haunted.

Stirring images of souls deceased,

Vivid in the vaporous air.

The old inn is warm, welcoming:

All about flames flicker fiercely.

And a goblet of red to raise the spirits,

Is devoured bloodthirstily within.
