Lost in a Storm

IMG_4885

The day grows colder

as my soul searches for solitude

walking in the snow

the screaming wind an interlude

 

Snow coming down hard

the trees begin to bend

treacherous storm

is there no end

 

Lost now

the spirits begin to hunt

my soul begs for mercy

the only sound is grunts

 

Trudging further ahead

praying for the light

has God forgotten me

He is out of site

 

Praying fervently

almost dead

suddenly a bright light

telling me not to dread

 

Coming closer

a voice screams in the wind

take hold of my hand

come out of the whirlwind

 

My hand takes hold 

as the spirits begin to run

soul safe now

the Light has won

the-31-days-of-october-challenge: Night of the Toy

mount locust toys april 27

Toys sitting on a table

guarding an old house

it is quiet now

only the movement of a mouse

 

The sun sets

the moon shines bright

the toys come alive

searching in the night

 

Given the power

to read the soul

as the toys touch the guests

their stories unfold

 

Those that are good

charitable and kind

a reward of a good dream

occupies their minds

 

Those that are evil

who steal life forces

have lucid nightmares

over their life choices

 

In the morning

as each guest awakes

the toys have left a gift

either joy or heartache

 

The toys have returned

to each one’s original place

waiting for the next guest

to claim a quiet space
