Do Spirits Exist (Tanka)

Do spirits exist

Walking the earth after dark

Or are we alone

It can’t be coincidence

That things go bump in the night


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~


The Dark Angels Fly (Tanka)

The Dark Angels fly

Back to the netherworld

Cloaked in ghoulish smiles

Proud of their terror unleashed

Anxious for the coming year


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~


All Hallows Eve (Acrostic)

Approach with haste O’ pagan night

Let ghost and ghoul cause scream and fright

Little children in costume plead

Holding out bags, on treats they feed

Alas the spirits under moonlit sky

Lumber and moan from low and high

Leading us all in a sinister dance

On Halloween in the devils prance

We think not of the origin of day

Slinking around in the shadows we play

Ever oblivious is probably best

Villains and monsters and all of the rest

Endear this festival from east to west


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
