The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

Aug2020_Image02Widow’s Verse
by Tawny Kipphorn

He comes to me in waves
As I wade through deepening waters,
Mighty staff of the Aegean
Crashing down in the cerulean sea.
As I stand on the precipice
Through the ages,
Like Poseidon without his trident
I am eterally bereft of my love.
My tears mingle with the salty sea air
And I can no longer tell which is responsible,
For the persistent stinging of my eyes.
I quell the urge to scream out as I’m forced to gaze upon the floating contraption that contains my greatest desire.
Though I may be bound unto my widows walk,
I look beyond that vessel in which my heart is locked away.
I lose myself in the vista,
transfixed by the silent promise of a reunion worthy only of the angels most high.

A Shadow of Autumn

Fall—a season as beautiful as it is foreboding. A Shadow of Autumn takes you back to childhood nostalgia while peeling away the mask to reveal things that haunt your worst nightmares. Within these pages, you’ll find the usual denizens of the holiday—demons, witches, ghosts, and bloodsuckers—along with strange and unknown creatures lurking everywhere from innocuous cornfields and pumpkin patches to basement hatches and high school dances. These fourteen tales of fall magic and Halloween horrors will keep you looking over your shoulder long after the last light of October has waned. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

Available on Amazon!
