October Visual Poetry Prompt

It’s the time of year when places are looking for a certain theme in their poetry submissions. Let’s give the people what they want in the comments below.

(Running “Halloween Poetry Submission” through your favorite search engine, is a fine idea.)

  1. One size fits all
    Is not a real thing
    unless it’s a death shroud.
    I ruined mother’s sheets
    but won first prize.

  2. El Dia del Muertos
    Was celebrated on the day
    Of our brother’s homegoing
    The center of the church was filled
    With memories of lost souls
    I think he would have been pleased
    I heard that he howled at the moon
    And I know he took the name
    Of Rising Son
    Yes, he would have been pleased
    I personally would have liked the feeling
    Like Halloween was my homegoing

  4. I am so busy during the week but have been noodling on the topic.

    Obsession

    October – not my thing for spooks
    November is better

    Even the calendar agrees
    El dia del muerte, All Saints Day, All Souls Day are all November events

    My children laugh at my mild obsession with death
    They say it is an Italian thing

    But I’m not the only one
    Forty percent of Americans believe in ghosts

    Sounds like many have mild obsessions
    November is optimal time to reflect on them
