The spiral trek

Hurry says the Robin blue

folding to the straying breeze

“Its up ahead,” he speaks in bird

“Just within the tree’s!”

 

My curiosity is peaked

so I gently set my course

moving to the bending reeds

that manage a windful force,

the crack of twigs beneath my feet

hair across my face

coldness making for rosy cheeks

as I ease upon my pace,

then lo’, behold upon the water

there at the edge of land

lays a body cold and worn

of a fairly youngish man.

 

“I told you so, I told you so!”

yells the little bird

“the rabbit did it, I saw him too!”

It sounded so absurd,

I looked in close at the mans white eyes

his face a solemn stare

to where he looks I back away

to look I would not dare.

 

Then a turtle in the shallows

speaks in a timid way

her murky eyes were glaring

she would tell if I but persuade,

“do tell,” I say with interest

my imagination off the hook

the turtle continues on

with a horrifying look,

“Twas the hallows that took him whole

midnight on the shore

his magick turned against him

and now he is no more.”

 

My heart beat skipped in song

the rhythm no longer in rhyme

I looked to the dampen nature

in fear to the committer of crime,

then I made my way back home

and explained the horrid tale

they all sat at the edge of their seats

by the end they were all quite pale.

 

For you see not far from that man

was another body found

a girl who was made the sacrifice

resting upon a spiral mound,

I left them to their darkened peace

made my way back to the place

where the Robin stirred in panic

begging to come in haste.

 

And so my story goes on and on

recurring a finite spiral

moving over and over again

ever sleeping upon that pile.
