All Hallows Eve
Any soul not yet at rest
Loosens the grip of uncertainty,
Leaves the abode of the dead, wanders
Here and there amongst the living.
As darkness enfolds earth’s visage
Lost spirits roam, hungering for
Love once refused, lessons to be learned.
Only those still in this realm who understand
What is required to seek fulfillment
Strive to offer hope and prayers.
Even these must wait to cross
Vast worlds and unexplained dimensions
Eventually to rest in peace.
I suspect that this will not be the only Halloween poem to be served up over at dVerse Poet’s Pub for Open Link Night: https://liv2write2day.wordpress.com Drop by for a treat…maybe even a trick, and enjoy some hot cider with a shot of brandy to warm you up…Brian Miller is tending bar. Be sure to bring your poetry to share with the rest of us or a hex upon you! But be assured, there is no theme; you can share whatever you want.
