I feel you here now
Tell me why you haunt me still

You left on a row

I am a ghost of myself

I died, you haunt me from life.

Senryu : Totter.

No ghost of a chance

I try  hard not to totter

These high heels haunt me.

Ghost

Dark  the  night  as  the lonely  soul takes  flight

Cold the wind that moans.Huddled together in fright

Caught by  the  night  children out alone on  the  moor

She  watches  their  progress  as  she has  done before.

 

Large  is  the  moon with it’s  silver  grey  light

As it runs  from  the  sun  and her  gold rays so bright.

So bound up  and lost is  she in a hell  all her  own

Yet  still  she  needs  to  guide  those  innocent  children  home.

Wandering ghost  so  sad  what  did  you  do  that  was  so  bad

Maybe  nothing but regret  for the  children  you never had.

Did  you  go  to your grave  you  wishes  undone  and unfulfilled

That  now  you  spend  your time  watching over  innocents and  doing  no  ill.

Five Photos Five Stories:Nonet : Dead all Dead

Will you  weep  for  me  when I  am gone

Notice  I  am lost  from  the  throng.

Stretched on my  grave unseen

I cannot  touch you now

Only in your dreams.

Lost  to sun, I

A creature

Of the

Night.

The Path less Traveled

IMG_20140623_084201379_HDRBy chance  we found the path  less traveled

Wandering down it, enchanted we watched as reality unraveled.

Time  stood  still only  we were  moving

Lies  and truth fought for honesty’s proving.

 

The birds were hushed  the wind  was  still

Grass grew in the middle  of  the road  as it slipped down hill.

Cotton wool clouds in an azure  blue sky

Strangely empty  not one bird up in it did fly.

 

Travelling on  in the afternoons glow we felt  the presence

Of  those who before had  passed  the is way be they lord  or peasants.

I felt  as if  I could reach out and touch them in some way

Not knowing  whether it were they or us that were really here  this day.

 

Shadows dancing on the ground as a gentle  breeze rose up

The sound of bees buzzing as in the flowers the supped.

All was peaceful and gentle that day.

As we with long gone souls did travel that way.

By chance  we found the path  less traveled

Wandering down it, enchanted we watched as reality unraveled.

Time  stood  still only  we were  moving

Lies  and truth fought for honesty’s proving.

 

Trio of Halloween Haiku

Smoke from pumpkins fill the air

Spells and treats  everywhere

Ghosts and Ghouls hide everywhere .

 

 

Late  returning home to bed

Sweets in tummys fuzzy heads

Home sweet home sleepy head

 

 

Vampires , witches and gaunt ghouls

Late night stay out fools

Halloween unholy evil night.
