The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


Of the Wood
by Amy Zoellers 


my temptation

my orbiting thirst

spun into verse

my glowing, glorious glowering

my night-flight past the dazzling moon

absorbing her fullness, exuberance,

imbibing her enchantment

oh stars, elements, gemstones,

from polished skull I sip your essence


My hair a horoscope of tangled reeds

elderflower and the old teachings.


creatures of nightfall, we,

in our woodland and nudity —

what force and storm we generate

in our sisterhood dance—

it lifts us to the sky.
