Lunar Warning

The Fall Writing Frenzy contest is afoot! I hope you enjoy my entry, a 105-word, YA poem inspired by the spooky moon photo.


Lunar Warning

By Hollie Wolverton


Creepy crescent


Ghoulish gibbous


Waxing, waning…

Which moon is it?


Nearing new or

nearly full?

How long till it

starts to pull

on beastly beings

buried deep?


Most the month, those

stay asleep


Waking with the

final phase—

A ghostly orb each

thirty days


Glaring down through

clouds and mist,

forcing bodies

to writhe and twist

Fangs erupt

Claws come out

Feet morph to paws

Nose, to snout


Then it’s

SLASH!!!

RRRRip and

growl!

A pack of wolves

on the prowl


See, the moon when

fully lit,

IT reveals those

who’ve been bit


Lunar phases!

They’re the key

telling you to…

Run from me!

AHHWOOOOOOOOOO!
