For Alice's Curiosity Shop Writing Contest
|Alice was knitting a cap for her husband,
Awaiting earnestly for his arrival.
Her hubby, a handsome young man loved her much
And she reciprocated his love as well.
Suddenly the chair she was sitting on leant.
The rocking chair beside her swayed to and fro,
Her pussy cat meowed with bellowing sounds.
The wind chimes tinkled portending an omen.
Completely bewildered she looked at her floor,
Fragments of a sari with drops of blood appeared.
A doll in a glass curio raved at her.
A heart in a glass jar dripped blood on the floor.
A small blue glass bottle appeared and vanished.
A grisly veiled figure appeared before her.
Gingerly she mustered all her courage and
Approached near the image that was a woman.
Panicked she felt strange and her vision got blurred.
Then the hoary form reappeared and told her
A tale of betrayal by her loving spouse.
Shell-shocked she bemoaned and tears fell down her face.
