The Decisive Witch

by night-filled eyes
her feet
held back
by the want
of the winds

still she moves
the intermittent lack

able to reach
through a trusted light
tight with energy

only to release it
the erratic edges
of a stone

the spell
now gone
to its rightful place

like the ink
from quills
to pages of poetry.


Sharon Ferrante: “An emerging poet from New York, a Witch from Calling All Poets never knowing how to write a bio.

Eric N. Peterson is from Atlanta, Ga. He’s been drawing cartoons all his life. He leans towards the absurd, imaginative, and the surreal, as that’s where all the flavor is.
