November bloodshed

When bloom of bloodshed´s darkly bled;
see corpses rise from soil and grave.
the zombies dance to songs of dread;
when bloom of bloodshed´s darkly bled
through rain and wind this troop of death
come knock on windows; friends be brave.
When bloom of bloodshed´s darkly bled;
see corpses rise from soil and grave.

Marion shares all the 30 different words for November poetry at toads. I have used some to create a little triolet. I will also link to Poetry Pantry tomorrow.

  1. ‘When bloom of bloodshed´s darkly bled; see corpses rise from soil and grave’… this is so chilling! I can truly picture those corpses rising from the graves!

  2. This was a painful read for me, Bjorn, as I am not into the zombie thing. I really don’t understand the fascination & think I must be missing something.

  3. I will take a couple of baseball bats.

    Walking Dead is a guilty pleasure of mine. And ironically, the danger always seems to be as much if not more from the other humans doing what it takes to survive than the dead.

  4. So you’ve visited my neighbourhood then? :o] (Life (and death) here are as you write. :o])
    Seriously – love your lovely gory words.
    Anna :o]

  5. Your words are gory, but the image is absolutely ghastly! I will shudder for days! 😉

  6. This haunting incantation is brilliantly constructed … the wording (rhyme, cadence and impact) bang on. I can imagine it popped into any number of appropriately themed books, plays or scripts … to great effect.

  7. Nice triolet, Bjorn. Not nice in subject matter, but nicely written for the form. The repeated lines, “When bloom of bloodshed´s darkly bled,” are to me very catchy.

    When bloom of bloodshed´s darkly bled;
    see corpses rise from soil and grave.

    Bloodshed and corpses would likely come together in a package as in this case. Eerie triolet and effectively presented!

  9. Interesting post about zombies, Bjorn. On a lighter note, I just watched Coco, an animated film about not really zombies but a look about after life.
