Melanie over at Sparksfromacombustiblemind clued me in to this awesome 31 days of October challenge brought to us by Laura over at lavent69. COOL. Sorry I’m so late jumping on the wagon but I am all over this one! Laura’s theme for today is “Primitives” Here is my contribution.

and of course of a bit of poetry

ANCIENT RITES
Hair unbound wild and free
she dances round the sacred tree
and sings her chant in rhymes of three

Fan the fire watch it grow
bring the creatures to the grove
where they come from no one knows

when at last the world between
signals planets align all unseen
Spirits rise on Halloween

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

  1. Oh wow!! So evocative. I’d forgotten that line “Something Wicked This Way Comes”….”By the pricking of my thumbs…” It’s the title to a book by Ray Bradbury too…danged good book, even though I haven’t read it for a long while now – time for a re-read I think! πŸ™‚ I’m looking forward to seeing your contributions each day and Laura (and Beckie) are AWESOME. πŸ™‚ Beckie clued me in on the 7th, so you’re not the only one a bit late to the ball. πŸ˜‰
