The Coven's Dance

The coven meets on high

under a moonlit sky.

Witches young and old

gather round to take control.

The maids, maidens and crones too

form a circle so none get through.

Dancing in the night,

chanting, calling, second sight.

Earth, air, fire and water

each appeased upon the alter.

Black candles, hand inscribed,

bring aid for the inner eyes.

Apples, honey, crystals, stones,

anthame, scrolls, ancient bones,

in the circle two young lovers meet.

Passion, longing, wanting, brings heat.

The dance grows more intense.

Chanting, breathing all commence

to work in time as bodies entwine.

Feel the power. Feel the rhyme,

calling, pulling, bringing, releasing,

what the vessel will be keeping,

he who will dwell, be born, come forth,

guarded by the watchtower of the north,

an old one called from the mist of the past,

what the coven has sought, at last.

As the lover’s passion rises and flows,

the god enters her womb and grows.

Energy crackles in the air.

Bring forth Chaos we dare.

Our work for tonight comes to a close.

For nine months the vessel glows,

our beautiful maiden, Rose,

keeper of what was called,

until he be born, then she falls.

Upon his birth she dies,

sacrificed to the father of lies.

Goodnight little witches far and wide.

When you join a coven, keep your eyes

wide open and never blink.

They may not be the sisters you think.

  • No, but I don't want to tell you because you might make me a toad.
  • Of course, how do you think I got to be so successful?
  • Duh, I didn't get rich off my looks alone.
  • Why? Is my glamour showing?
  • You are all nuts and I'm leaving now.

MandyF ~ Thanks for dropping by and for your kind words. I would not look to this for insight though as it is simply a Halloween write...or should I say rite??? Hmm, I digress, again simple, spooky, fun fiction, and the correspondances are all wrong for a real witchy write ;).

Beautiful hub from you. May I dance with you? I thought you look so pretty indeed....hahaha. Just kidding my friend. But thanks for share your poem. I love this very much. Vote up as usual.

Prasetio :)

I don't know what to think about this Hub... It is another dark/romantic poem. The words taunt me... I wish... I fantasize about being with you... On an intellectual plane I mean. Why do you haunt me so? The following lines are quite provoking.... Sigh...

"Chanting, breathing all commence

to work in time as bodies entwine.

Feel the power. Feel the rhyme,

calling, pulling, bringing, releasing,

what the vessel will be keeping...." Yours truly and stunned... Matt.

Very cool-I especially like your little "vote" capsule; that was fun!

Me? I'm not into the occult at all-and I've got science loving friends who spend all their time trying to "debunk" everything. Myself, I believe in some "supernatural" things. I dislike the word "supernatural" because nothing is "supernatural," it's just not explainable. . . that's all that word usually means.

I think that it IS IN FACT always explainable(the "supernatural"), but the explanation is unacceptable to most.

Todd ~ Thanks for your kind words.

Hmm... "the explanation is unacceptable to most" is a most interesting way of putting it and very true I think. Just because something cannot be proven, yet, does not mean it isn't necessarily real.

Ive got stories that were they told-folks around here would have me in the state hospital(again), but that doesn't mean that what happened wasn't real, it was merely something without an "acceptable" explanation.

To appease the four elements, sow the seed of a god, dance with passion and warn the unwary on a single page is the gift and compact of a fine poet and once again demonstrated by this write. Whatever your present, your future promises more of the best.

Nicely written. Reminded me of "Young Goodman Brown". Good flow and great imagery. The ending was quite a twist, too. I imagine that some readers dislike the content and don't give the poem the full chance it deserves. After reading the ending, one understands that a strong warning comes with this sort of activity. Cheers.

Doug ~ Thanks for dropping by and for your most kind words. I never really stopped to consider that some might leave mid read but, I guess that is just the way of things. God bless and happy hubbing!
