Names And Ghost

.

“Only

times

and places,

only

names

and ghosts.”

.
Aldous Huxley

.

Elfje: Cinquaiin

.

spook

lost soul

not a trace

to haunt my place

ghost

.

Tanka: 5,7,5 7,7

.

his story was sad

he needed a ghostwriter

read but never seen


to tell his tale or go mad

would it end up as fiction

.

Poem:

.

the old town clock rang in the hour
what was I doing up at three in the morning
a ghostly sound from atop of the tower
an omen, was it the specters fair warning

a mist blew in from across the bay
adding an echo to the eerie sound
moonlight made everything appear a whitewash grey
a distant foghorn was heard in the background

the smell of salt water hug in the air
the senses aroused made my hair stand on end
muscles tensed, awaiting a scare
at that moment I needed a friend

the alarm was loud, the fog slowly lifted
hate those dreams that are so totally vivid

‘Wasteland’

.

.

“Your shadow

in the morning

striding behind you

Or your shadow

in the evening

rising to meet you;”

.

~ T S Eliot’s ‘Wasteland’

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

light

traveling forward

going almost everywhere

stopped by my mind

shadows

.

Haiku:

.

winters short shadows

natures very own time clock

summers long shadows

.

Poem:

.

looking for the bright side
wanting to share the love
having a kind friend as a guide
I think He is from above

the sheep follow the religion
the books they interpret for their cause
of love He needs just a smidgen
maybe there are just too many laws

always doing the next right thing
speaking from the heart not the brain
upon a star my hope does swing
no need to rely upon shadowy arcane

every thought is a  prayer
as long as you don’t ask for much
a secret oath the world should swear
hugs only with a very soft touch

opining for a trend worldwide
a good deed to be proud of
to rid the world of the acrimonious
to have all hearts and souls harmonious

share the love
be the love
follow your heart
always do your part
