Below is a poem I recently wrote simultaneously with a short horror story. The short story was read on Trio Simpatico, the podcast I co-host. We produced the reading for our string of horror themed episodes in October, and a portion of the poem is used to close out that piece.
Both the story and the poem are based on a dream which my wife relayed to me one morning. Her dream was splendidly cryptic and contained some really frightening imagery. The short story, called Ghost Storm, is an elaboration of the nightmare as my wife told it to me, while the poem is more of an interpretation of the same basic ideas though most of the details are transferred to a completely different time and place.
If you’d like to hear our audio production of Ghost Storm click HERE I’ll most likely be posting the text here in the weeks to follow.
The poem is below the break, enjoy!
