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.

bass strumming 
warns danger lurks,
Rain lashed strings

figure lurks,
Eerie chimes bend,
bell rings
