Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge
Welcome back! The response last week was very encouraging. A personal thank-you to each one of you who found time, inspiration and effort to write, and dig into creativity.
Horror is a genre we haven’t touched in the Exploration Challenge prompts as yet. It may have figured in the responses, but not in the prompts.
I make an effort to conquer my own inhibitions and discomfort with horror.
Explore your psyche to see if you love something so short, or take a longer route to build up anticipation and fear.
It is easy to give yourself a fright
To be afraid of your own shadow sometimes
Fear lives in all our minds and comes unbidden
A shape in the dark, a creak in the dead of the night
Awakens the horror, makes it come alive
A shivering shadow at the window makes you want to scream
It is just a piece of cloth blown by the wind
Turn on the light and you find the tapping was nothing more
Than the overhanging branches of the tree
Sometimes you wonder if the dragging on the roof was
Just your imagination or is there some ghostly activity going on there?
