Inspiration Wall: Backside of the Night

This was inspired by prompt that developed organically between Davy D, S. Francis and Chuck.   Of course, it did take a little darker turn in my hands. . .

Haunted hours

When my ghosts

Emerge from

The ether


In slow rotation

Through my memory


Only they can hear

Skeletal orchestra


Backside of the night

When my demons

Come out to play

Leap frog through

My dreams

Like rowdy children

With fangs

With talons

Red rover

Red rover

Shall we play

Hide and seek?

  1. I love this take on the Backside of the Night Christine. It is good to get a view as to how it has different connotations for different poets but still able to inspire excellent poetry.
