Poetry challenge #3: Samhain

Nicely done…

Jane Dougherty Writes

This week’s theme is obviously Halloween, Samhain, Toussaint, All Hallows, whatever you want to call it—the end of the old year and the beginning of the new. This is the time when the dead are close, our waking world and the otherworld touch, the door between them is open.

Be inspired by the season, the myths, or the picture. One more round of sept form—seven lines of 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 syllables respectively. Get writing and post your creations here.


Here are my efforts.


long dead

hasten from

the otherworld

drawn moth-like

to flame



night falls

moonless sky

still the lake lies

candle flame

draws you



once warm

your heart was

now still and cold

let the flame

your steps
