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
