Peacock Poetry

Nearly half way through the April poetry writing challenge and today’s prompt is to write a spooky and mysterious poem. Last year at gospel choir we practiced a spooky number called “Holy Ghost Party” which got under my skin! So much so in fact that on leaving one rehearsal, my whole walk back home turned into an imaginary haunted scene. I have captured the moment in the words below and for those of you who are unfamiliar with our cats names, we have a mini tiger called Ziggy and his two black sisters, Ebony and Nera.

Spooky Night

The air was spider-websy

The graveyard gate it creaked

And in the garden Ebsy

Played feline hide-and-seek

The crickets call was creepy

The orange lampposts glared

A village once so sleepy

Made minstrel moo cows scared

It could have been the moonlight

The church’s fantom gong

Something just didn’t feel right
