Dark Christmas – Light

Some interesting prompts over at Mindscapes  Thought I would do something a little different on the Christmas themes.

mindescapes Christmas Challenge 2017


Stars snuffed out as space he crossed

consuming all before

until a planet full of life

green hill ran to blue shore


A Timeless creature dark of heart

in search he roams the night

presented with this gift of life

and joy and streaming light


Each heart a feast each soul divine

each mind a thing to savour

he gorges, belly fat and round

lips smack tongue tastes sweet flavour


And over time into their world

they welcome him arms wide

and worship at his festival

tell tales by fire side


His garments red his beard like snow

red eyes, teeth sharp, blood claws

he stalks in search of prey at nights

until the winter thaws


And then he slumbers until once

again the frost awakes

and hunger drives him ever on

and heart and soul he takes
