Mrs. Claus is Waiting

Photo by JillWellington on

Posed at the large glass screen doors,

A figure wrapped in crimson awaits

Long, bony fingers rest on

The translucent surface,

Threatening to shatter its fragile existence

At any moment

Limbs sprout from deathly pale skin,

Like a spider’s legs

Scraggly black hair that wisps

As her lips arch into a crooked smile

With a shrill laugh, the creature asks,

“Won’t you let me in, little child?

Mrs. Claus just wants a tiny nibble!”

This poem was inspired by an incredible piece of art from talented concept artist, @tutankart on Twitter. In particular, this image inspired my imagination to run wild and create this horror/Christmas themed poem. I can’t even describe how amazing this art is. The overall design of Mrs. Claus, the composition, the color scheme; everything’s just great.

If you haven’t already, head on over to Twitter and check out Tutank’s wonderful art! Let’s support this talented artist!
