When The Moon Is Full by wyldraven When The Moon Is Full by wyldraven
The midnight journey.

~

I had different ideas for this picture originally, but it proved quite difficult for me. There was suppose to be hounds racing along side the carriage but it just didn't work. It's always a bit of a challenge to create a dark vampiric atmosphere.

I like this just the way it is.  It inspired my free verse poem:  

ANOTHER LOST SOUL

Hanging low 

behind ominous clouds, 
the suspended moon looms large, 
giving the illusion one could touch it, 
causing a supernatural feel 
to the already eerie night.


Darkness encompasses 
the fleeing coach
like a shroud, 
leaving the feeling 
a demonic sinister presence 
waits in the shadows
ready to pounce.


A horde of bats flit overhead
erratically as if to lead the
ill-fated journey.


Bare trees 
encroach like spindly arms 
reaching out to grab anyone 
who dares come within their reach,
like mammoth spiders in webs 
waiting for their prey.


Swathed in a scarlet cloak, 
the faceless driver 
only adds to the creepiness 
as a lone black stallion 
shimmers under the moonlight,
racing in a thundering gallop 
as if Lucifer, himself, is at the reins.


Within the crimson coach, 
a lost soul has fallen victim 
to this red phantom.


The veiled moon 
casts looming shadows 
that dance maniacally, 
as another lost soul 
the dark angel snatches
for all eternity.

I cannot tell you how much I love this!  Superb job!  May I have permission to use it with a free verse poem I wrote to go along with it (giving you full credit for your work, of course).  You have permission to use my poem as well if you like it.  It was your work that inspired mine!
