Spillwords – Spooky Festivities

Oh, the wind how it wails
a lonely dog howls
through the night
competing with sulking
loons as they cry out
guttural and eerie sounds.
The quiet lake under the guise
of serenity now a haunting
blackhole covered in mist.
Spooky shadowy figures,
not friendly folk, shrouded
in icy white convene with
witches and goblins planning
and plotting their knavery.
The inky midnight sky,
air thick and suffocating,
comes alive and reckless with
broom wielding witches, so spry.
Acrobatic bats tango with stars
while waltzing apparitions emerge.
A pale moon wakened, peeks
through quilted clouds
and harks back “what’s the ado!?”
The air resounds with whoops, hollers,
shrieks of delight and noisy chants
luring onlookers and rubber-neckers.

Come hither, my friends
Tis a frightfully good time
Why it’s Halloween!

Spooky Festivities


A Christmas Tree Wish

A Season of Smiles

        I scanned other info on the site…pondering whether I might submit something, but I’m still unclear how it all works. Do you retain the copyright? How much exposure do you truly get–more than on the blogs, or more “serious”/professional exposure than blogging? No rush to reply–just when you have time, I’d appreciate info from someone who’s “been there” 🙂

  7. I believe you must register before you can submit. Here is the link to their Terms and Conditions – https://spillwords.com/terms-and-conditions/ and their FAQ – https://spillwords.com/faq/. I can’t find anything on their number of followers except for followers outside their site such as Twitter. My thoughts are it’s nice that my work is published after being submitted for another’s review. Plus their site has a classy feel to it. There are several from WordPress that have published work on Spillwords. I hope this helps.
