Fear


In the far reaches
Of Kingdom Fae
Along the edges hidden
Is where danger lays

Unnamed monsters
Lurk Unseen
Stay in the sun's light
Walk the moon's beam

Life is as dreams
The things we dread
The things we often fear
Are created in our heads                      Linking to Imaginary Garden With Real Toads

I love these "after dark" poems and things that go bump in the night. That last shot is really quite excellent - all kinds of darkness, branches and lurking moon. H to M, n y'all. L

Beautiful...and true.

Sandra said...

so true and my fear of the dark is in my head and so are many of my other fears, but have yet to figure out how to get them out of my head.

Linda Kay said...

Great thoughts today on creating fear in our heads. I'm a bit of a worrier, and that gets me in soooo much trouble.

Seriously, if you don't put together a book of Arkansas verse, research who publishes these things, write your query letters and submit, then I may hurt you. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That had a great rhythm to it. Yeah, it's usually in our heads.
But what if it's not...?

Karen S. said...

So very true, indeed! It's the same haunting feelings I have out with my pups before we go to bed. I just carried away the remains of a poor little bunny that didn't make it through the clutches of something evil that was afoot throughout the evening.

TexWisGirl said...

so very true (that's why i don't watch scary movies - spend too much time out here alone and even in the dark.) :)

Farm Girl said...

Lovely Gail. So true too.

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

I like the feeling behind these words.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Nothing will terrify us more than the demons that burst out of our minds--we know what they can do. And the fact (accepted or not) that we were the ones to whisper everything they know into their ear, makes the whole affair even scarier.

Well said.

Sandy said...

Gail,

So true, our imaginations run wild at night.

Michaele said...

The boogie man is real!

Mama Zen said...

This is so true!

Lynne said...

True . . . a "good one!"

FEAR

Evidence
Appearing

Other Mary said...

Spooktacular, and the photos are perfect, especially the lower one.

Debi Swim said...

Nothing is as scary as what we can imagine in the middle of the night. Great read.

Kerry O'Connor said...

That is very true!

cosmos cami said...

I wish I believed this instead of what is in my own head. :)
Loved the playfulness here, mocking too-human folly.

Stacy Lynn Mar said...

you were spot on in the idea that most of our fears are things we've created in our heads!

awesome write.

Ravenblack said...

Truly. Fear of the unknown and a great imagination leads to such. Funny how we easily think of the worst things that can happen. :)

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

A lovely blend of mystery and truth.

Ella said...
