The eerie night!

In response to secretkeeper’s weekly writing prompt #133, to use the following five words or their synonyms in a poem/fiction.



Lost in the wilderness

with no clue ,where to head

tar grey clouds brood over

damp forest floor, exudes an acrid stench

branches draw monstrous silhouettes

menacing winds croon a forbidding song

ravenous howls grow louder

a sign of looming danger

eyes move furtively in the dark

failing to find a road to escape

the probing hand feels a slimy creature

sending shivers down the spine

the screams for help, echo back

the soul held captive by fear

drenched in sweat, completely paralyzed.

β€œCut”! comes in the directors call,

Smiling, with a thumbs up,

A great shot, in one take!

Pack up! He shouts!!

    1. You are such a kind soul Meenakshi, always so appreciative of my work. I have still not thought about publishing a book. God willing sometime down the line. Thanks a ton for your constant encouragement. Lots of love❀️
