I smell my widow's perfume as she leans close.
Knowing her secret joy even as she sobs regrets.
I can only await the flame.

Deep Winter

Outside a frozen splendor
While inside fire crackles & freezer hums
Full until spring
When shallow digging is possible

They came at dawn
Dragged me from leaden slumber
Thrust me into searing brightness
And demanded, CAN YOU SEE YOUR SHADOW

For Neil

Brief. Any & all of us.
WHY? To what crazy purpose?

The Old Rugged Cross

We sang a sad song
Her family cried
On the chorus SHE joined in
Explained as escaping gas
But I swear her harmony was dead on

No Picnic

He lopes down the cottage path to scrabble the threshold
Red barely hears Granny's trembling sigh
The wolf is at the door

Hammer, visqueen, duct tape, box cutter

What an honor to have my drabble read by Norm. And the narration and sound effects really brought it to life. Great job.

An atheist at the gate

Is it my fault I held no faith?
I led a good life.
Have I no chance to get in?

Memory's the first to go

Oh, it tickles, she giggled
The octogenarian vampire groaned
Forgotten dentures again
Once more he'd gummed things up

I've stopped, but the echoes have not

Who was that masked lycanthrope hunter?

Expensive bullets, aye Tonto.
