Watchers

Rainbows at Night - The Poems of Clive Culverhouse



Watchers


The Heliodorians delight in tales and stories. They entertain, they amuse and they scare.

Here’s one such passage that is often told around a dark night’s fire, especially out in the open of a forest clearing – for what does hide in the trees?

Whatever or whoever hides, be careful it or they don’t get you…





Watchers

they see you

they smell you

look behind you

Watchers

They know you



Watchers

with eyes on you

with knowledge on you

Look around you

Watchers

They invade you



Watchers

can shake you

can control you

Look at you

Watchers

They frighten you



Watchers

come to you

come for you

Look upon you

Watchers

They get you



Watchers

will eat you

will shrink you

Look within you

Watchers

They have you
