From darkness’ breath they sprung
as sister flames green, red, and gold
Together they toiled hearts and minds
with magic, beauty, and mystery.
Fear a green eyed brunette
spun terror caging hearts stark
with delusional minds in the dark
Allure a doe eyed red head
spread glamor like a spark
burning wings of a skylark.
Cheer a silver eyed blonde
cut terror from magic like a hark
from a huntsman horn gone marque.
Together they are isthmus’ bulwark
separating spirits from humans like a bark
keeps sap trapped behind a pockmark.
Fires burning in the night make them strong
conjuring hearts, souls and minds in a bond.
Together they unleash spirits to taunt humans
to rejoice with terror, mischief, and felicity.
Halloween has its own trinity of muses and fates: Fear, Allure, and Cheer. Together they bring terror, magic, and joy to both humans and spirits. This is my visualization of the three ladies chanting by the fire in the woods at night.
