Flashback Friday Poetry: Friendship and Romance Part 3

Terra and Caelus longed to be with one another
but Sol continued to forbid it.
He saw Terra as a dear friend
and would not see her hurt by anyone.
Luna tried to convince him,
she told him Caelus truly loved Terra
but Sol could not see for his eyes
were shaded by Caelus’s past.

One night as Luna and Sol began their dance,
Caelus approached Terra.
He asked her if she would join him in the waltz
and she graciously accepted.
They started slow, gaining each other’s trust.
Before long, they were dancing circles
around Luna and Sol
and Sol knew they were meant to be together.

I’ll be at the Mad Monster Party in July

If you’re not familiar with Mad Monster Party, I suggest you check out their website. This is a horror themed convention and I’ll have a vendor table. It’s happening in Glendale, AZ on the Fourth of July weekend. They have a great list of celebrities who will be in attendance. It looks like it’ll be a lot of fun. What will I be doing there? At my vendor table, I’ll be selling copies of my book “The Morbid Museum,” a collection of short horror stories framed around a curator and museum of death.

I’ll have paperback copies and a few hardbound copies. I will also have an exclusive collection of spooky haikus available for those spooky poetry fans. “Haunting Haikus” has 23 haikus along with some images. It’s a quick read but fun. I will also have a few bookmarks for sale. These will have spooky themes like skulls, pumpkins, and witches. I’ll post some photos once I have everything collected and packaged. I’m still waiting on a few deliveries. I’ll post more details as I get them. If you’ll be in Glendale, AZ on the Fourth of July weekend, come to the Mad Monster Party, find my table, and say hi. I’m looking forward to hanging with my fellow horror enthusiasts. 

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Friendship and Romance Part 2

since her friend’s affection for one another grew
Terra had felt sad and lonely
but someone new had come to lift her heart

Caelus Nocturnus won over Terra’s heart
her loneliness fell as her happiness grew
but Sol feared she was blind from being lonely

from all the time she had been lonely
Caelus could prey on her sad heart
And then Sol and Luna’s anger grew

as their anger grew; Terra regained her lonely heart
