The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

by Alina Măciucă

Monsters and ghouls,
Headless horsemen,
Witches and all sorts
Of revenants,
All queued up
Waiting to pierce
Through the veil,
And rattle some chains,
Screech and howl,
And ride ghastly horses.
Clip-clop, clip-clop
Through rotting leaves.
Such a peculiar thing to
When we are
Always here,
— what is the meaning
Of time, anyway —
Watching you,
Touching you,
Changing the course
Of your thoughts.
And such friendly
Shapes you have
Envisioned us in.
Sometimes, we like to
How you would react
To *knowing* what
We are.
And our laughter
Destroys worlds.
So we have to
Build new ones,
With brand new
Strange, little creatures,
Flesh and bone,
To shape us
As they will.

  1. Great response to the prompt – I really appreciated how you engaged our senses – particularly hearing – “clip-clop” – I hear the horseman right now!
