Witches’ Attempt

It’s 2:00 a.m. 
I’m awoken from the sounds of howling outside my window
Two or more women are howling in unison
The wind is blowing outside and they are howling with it
Up and down, high and low their howling grows

I get out of my bed and look out the window
The moon is high and full 
The moon’s reflection shines on the pond behind my home

I pray and call out, “Lord help!”
Within minutes….silence
