Samhain Night


Samhain Night

In the whistling trees

Through the cold breeze

Are the screams

Of lost souls

Dying alone.

Ever moving through the shores

All the pain they must endure

Can be heard late night

The source of all fright.

Mouths agape in agony

The image of misery

The souls move free

Yet they are prisoners

Of their own war.

Love gained, love lost

Heated warmth, cold with frost.

Spirits roam through your window

Samhain's lost souls.

And one would never know

One would never feel

The kiss upon the brow

Of the life death could steal

Would steal.

And by the time the night is through

They have been found and replaced

Back to the Otherworld

Without even a trace.

And one would never see,

Never hear

The dead ones free

That were once so dear.

In the whistling of the trees

Through the cold breeze

Listen carefully

For the screams

Next Samhain night

When the veil is opened ever so slight

For the lost souls

On Samhain night.

This Celtic celebration is still observed in Ireland and associated with Halloween in the U.S., it is considered Pagan and observed as a marking at the end of October and beginning of November in a celebration. Your poem is well done and representative of this celebration and well received by those who read it.

I've had a tune in my head all morning, so I read this as lyrics.... I really enjoyed it. The images you conveyed were of wonderment... of a slight rip in the reality we know to encompass the other realms we wander around. Some of the stuff you read on Samhain is of the macabre genre, however, I got the feeling this is something of interest rather than fear, despite the screams ;)

I don't think of lost souls. My Samhain is about family I miss. It's a bit sad but also warm and a good time to remember what I know about them and what I really miss about them too.

My Samhain is also about those that I have lost and miss but I also think of lost souls. I also of course think about all of my habits and weaknesses, for Samhain to me is a time time to banish these. Thank you for reading.

Oh, I really loved this one. It does capture part of the meaning of the season for me-- which is about missing loved ones, but also about all the ways death affects us as part of the life cycle.
