Tanka: Samhain Spirits - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

When the frost is on

the pumpkins and the moon joins

the phantom riders

then the veil between two worlds

parts as spirits are rising.

    Love this poem, both for it's formal richness and it's theme. It is indeed a subject that has fascinated me for a long time and I'm glad to find another poet who is inspired by challenging, transcending subject matters... Rod (Report)Reply
