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.
