The House of Sacred Powers

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #563

Words:  spirits, sideways, ache, owl, heavy, sacred, covers,
        feast, hollow, lit, power, crack

Albescent spirits float
sideways.  A heavy hollowness
covers The House of Sacred 
Powers.  Owl keeps watch
through the night as he
prepares his dinner feast.
Secluded in woods, the house
is mysteriously lit each
night.  It is said, when
thunder blasts, and lightning
cracks the night sky, moans
of aching souls can be heard,
unable to pass through
to the other side.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
