Eyes out of darkness

This is the time of year we are supposed to be happily frightened by zombies, witches and the like. Instead we are unhappily scared
by possible pandemic, terrorism, and other unseen horrors that seem to be seeing us. We look into the night outside our warm window and find the possbility of eyes returning the look.
We are still alert for those eyes, even when daylight returns. It is not what we see that can hurt us….or is it?
People don’t mind the fright of Hollywood, but now they’ve extended the horror genre to our own real world. The ironic grin of the pumpkin and the meancing walls of corn stalks not yet felled
provide a horror that is entertainment….for the rest, check your local and national news.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
