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

i vanish

“moonlight disappears

down the hills

mountains vanish

into fog

and i vanish

into poetry.”

― Sanober Khan

Elfje:        (Cinquain)

.

skilled

have dominance

power to defeat

artist of consummate skill

master

.

Haiku:

.

moonlight disappears

mountains vanish into fog

morning brings in fall

.

.

Poem:

two personalities
one good and one evil
feigning normality
emotions primeval
most are born that way
some closer to the edge than others
hormones that make them gay
can we blame the mothers
let them live their personal lives
the law implies we do no harm
God knows only the fittest survive
some we must commit to the funny farm
choices, choices, yin or yang
change your personality if you can . . .
