Here’s mine after 4 different words – ghost, moon, cat, strange.

***

A ghost of light and stars are sounding. A shell and star can be the robins.

The moon shall be set; and the soft veil, the thunder of the stream of the wind was done

Our cat shall stand in spirit, emotional stars court the heavens of the world

Strange rings, this music which should have all the souls.

Six Feet Under

~

Six times six times six, again

Dark and lonely, was I in…

This moldy grave.

Barely breathing, heart still beating…

None to hear my mad-man rave.

Cursed and cast into the void,

For eons have I toyed…

To claim all psyche’s pure and good…

To corrupt them, if I could.

Six feet under, left asunder,

Tricked them, now they’re mine…

They never knew I was immortal,

To rise again…it’s time.

Years of torture, hell’s departure…

Vengence will be taken.

I’ll tempt, and bend, and lure to sin…

And, they shall be forsaken.

Smudge

Smudge

***

Blue eyed dreamer

Pale of face

Sees beyond eternities grace

Dark swirling demons

He must confront

Evil powers he will blunt

Ritual of sage

Chants profound

Banish monsters all around

The smudge he waves

Above ~ Below

Cleansing smoke now bestow

Leave behind peaceful glow

Look at Me

Click to view

A teeny tiny spider

Jumped upon my arm

Don’t worry spidey

I won’t do you harm

Off he jumped, then back again

As if to say, “See me”

Then off he went

His visit did not last

I looked for him, but he was fast

He didn’t stay to play

See you again another day

Little spider be on your way

It’s that time again for the April A to Z Blog Challenge. I’ve done this one for quite a few years, and it’s always fun.

This time I decided to go with the miscellaneous type posts, which some days will be whatever I want, and other days will be a resurrection of my older posts that pretty much no one or very few ever saw.

So, here we go with Letter G …

I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU

Why can’t you see me?

I never planned on being a Ghost…a Ghost of myself.

Flitting around you, I beg for attention…validation…

I am me…a Soul in transition…pain…

Why won’t you see me? I am here beside you.

You look right through me…like I’m not real.

It’s so hard…so hard…I want to be heard.

I need to know you still think of me…still love me.

I am transformed…not gone, not forgotten, not dismissed or diminished as

A strange sound, a confusing coincident of you know-not-what.

I don’t mean to scare you. Please feel no fear. I need your warmth…your love.

I ache to be near you.

Am I the cold chill you feel when I reach out to touch you?

Yes, it’s me.

Am I the wisp of mist you think you see, from the corner of your eye?

Yes, it’s me

Am I the moaning sound you think is the wind through the cracks?

Yes, it’s me.

I’m screaming out to you. I have been here all along.

I have not forgotten you. I give you signs…

Give me a sign that you still care…that you recognize that sudden small flash of memory.

Yes, it’s me, recognizing you in that moment.

I had to leave this life, this mortal realm.

It wasn’t my choice, you see. Please believe me…believe in me,

As I am still here with you…as I am.

I live in your heart, in your thoughts…I am still me, loving you, with all my Soul.

Am I the silence, when you sense that you’re being watched…yes, it’s me…I am near.

Yes, it’s me…still loving you with all my Soul…I am me…

I am the Ghost beside you…

This poem is one I wrote back in 2016, and is a mash-up of two short separate poems.

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter E

⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡⚡

Song of Energy

Zap me with your energy

Pretend I am your star

Dance a song of synergy

Expend me from afar

Darling, no need for apology

Gratitude leaves no scar

Grant me this one wish

Zap me with your energy

I’m your only star
