|Wind of History by Jacek Yerka|

where witches roam
a wind enchants
draws victims to
clawed spellbound rants
and waves, they roll
in and out ... in and out
they cause a hole
inside cold hearts
a cauldron seeps
a rage disturbed
a horror steep
so stay away
from haunted homes
where witches roam
and words don't sleep

haha you really captured the feel of this laurie...smiles...remember those old houses as kids...and stories people would make up...made me think of that...
A moody poem for a moody house. Well done!
Like minds...spooky words...great fit. Well done. Enjoyable.
Great atmospheric words and loved the last line.
I've seen that house. Heed the warning.
I like the repetition of in and out...in and out and love the last four lines.
both pic & poem remind me somewhat of my childhood home - repetition reinforces the witchy spell well, and for me, the relentlessness of "words [that] don't sleep"...
Perfect poem for a perfect witchy picture :)
yes i agree a spooky picture and a great piece from you..x
Love those last three lines- spine chilling. :-)
haunted houses are scary !!!
yow- good one- so moody
I loved the spookiness of this!
Oh shivers! I do believe in spooks I do believe in spooks...
'Where words don't sleep'- I guess
that would be true for spells!
(I am still having trouble getting
here- I couldn't from your name or picture, when you visited me !)
A fun haunt at your haunt, have to watch those witches when they taunt.
a rage disturbed- i like that
Yes, be mindful. It's spooky. Unexplained happenings seem the norm in many instances! Nicely Laurie!
What an ominous warning those last four lines ... such atmosphere in this piece! Loved it!

Haunting, chilling, shivery and superb!
I loved your spooky witchy poem here. It's the solitary lit window I found disturbing.

This one begs to be read aloud.
Love this. Some of my favorite images are dancing around in here. Especially love those last 2 lines,
"where witches roam
and words don't sleep"
Yes, I saw a hauntingness in the photo as well....great write! :-)
Your words really created an eerie feeling!
Ah this was a special treat! I also love it when words don't sleep!
