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 …

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge 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

Love Is In Da Blog 2021 Day # 3 – Casablanca

We are supposed to find something to do with this movie, “Casablanca”, I think.

Honestly, I’ve never seen this movie, and have only heard a phrase or two, like ‘play it again Sam’, and I know Humphrey Bogart starred. There was a woman in the movie and an airplane. That’s about all I know.

Anyway, here is a nice song called, “Casablanca”, by Bertie Higgins. The video is in black & white, and shows still shots from the movie.

I also think we’re supposed to write an acrostic poem if we want to, so here’s mine – it’s so silly …

As Time Goes By

A – A movie I’ve never seen

S – Seems to be about an epic love

T – There are great actors

I – I’ve heard of starring in

M – many memorable movies

E -Except I can’t remember these memorable movies right now

G – Gee whiz!

O – Otherwise I’d tell you what they are

E – Eventually

S – Sam might play it again

B – But

Y – You never know – unless you watch the movie

Well, I’m probably doing this all wrong. 🙂

Just a dab of lotion

On my cracked chapped hands

It’s winter time here

In these cold bitter lands

I would rather it be spring time

When it’s warm with blowing sands

Or maybe summer would be best

As we crank up the fans
