sharp knife that ghost borrowed

sharp is the wind blowing through my mind

cut to the quick – the hurting kind

sharp shards of snowflakes

hits my face – freezes my senses

sharp as teeth biting eye lenses

icy numbness running through

reminds me to never ever forget you

Scenes of Favorite Days – # 3 –


Scenes of Favorite Days – # 3 – Click to view Click to view Click to view


I don’t know why this is a favorite day, but the whole thing was unusual and I just enjoyed it, I guess.

Another super windy day with sand blowing. Middle of the afternoon – power is out – furnace is out – it’s winter time again.

I’d been sewing Barbie clothes for the girl’s dolls, and also I had been watching my favorite soap opera. It was my mom’s favorite, too, and when it ended I called her to talk about it, as it was a very suspenseful episode. Then the power went out.

I was sitting on top of the kitchen table, the house was getting cold, and I didn’t know how to re-light the furnace (it was a gas pilot light and the wind had blown it out), but it was okay – we didn’t blow up.

One other thing though, was I’d been reading some kind of spooky stories about ghosts and such. It said the spirits loved the windy dark days, too, as the static electricity in the air was conductive to their appearing. I still always think of this on these kinds of days.


~note~ I have no pictures of any of this today – no sand, no Barbie doll, no furnace, no table, no soap opera 🙂 – little pictures (doll, TV, & ghost) are from Free Clip Art~

Haunted Coffee Table – Another Story of My Grandma’s Haunted House


Haunted Coffee Table – Another Story of My Grandma’s Haunted House


This is one more story I have about my Grandma’s Haunted House. I wrote this one on July 28, 2014.

Have you ever seen a normal household object in your house fly through the air on it’s own? I have on many occasions. As long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to the paranormal realm. I know there are many unexplainable occurances in the world, and I really believe they are from another dimension, or a parallel universe, from outer space, or even a ghost.

With this post, I’ll begin relating some of my most memorable experiences with the supernatural.


Flying objects have been pretty consistant in my experience. First at my grandma’s house, then in my own homes.  My grandmother was the 13th child in her family. When I was growing up, she lived around the corner from us – the adddress was 1313 xyz Street. Her house was haunted. I don’t know if all the 13 numbers had anything to do with it, but it did make it more interesting.

On many occasions, when I was at her house, just sitting there in the living room, things would fly off the coffee table for no reason we could see. Things like a candy dish, a magazine, or an ashtray would slide, jump, or fly off it. We did not make this happen. We didn’t know when it would happen, it just did. It got pretty commonplace to see this happening off and on through the years.

I know there were unseen entities in that house. We could feel their presence, and see what they did. I never actually saw an apparition, but did see things move about, and hear strange noises there. Later on, my grandma moved into another house, taking some of her furniture with her. That coffee table was one of the pieces she kept. I think something was attached to it and came along to the new place, because the occurances of flying objects continued there, also.

My aunt still has that coffee table in her house, now. I took a picture of it recently, but didn’t see anything strange about it. I know it has secrets, though. It is off to the left, in front of the dustcloth covered couch. She’s never said if anything weird happens with it now.

In future posts, I will tell of more flying objects I’ve seen … at my own house! I will, also tell more true stories of my encounters with the paranormal.

Have you had any weird experiences like this? What are your thoughts on the unexplained? I’d love to hear your stories!

The coffee table is in front of the sheet covered couch in this photo. It is dark brown, with slats, and it is fairly long. You can click the photo to enlarge.

Countdown to Halloween – Day 21


Countdown to Halloween – Day 21



Poem # 21



Twisting, turning in their graves

Souls want out tonight.

Tangled in their silken shrouds,

No one hears their plight.

A Specter of their former selves,

They claw with bloody nails…

They struggle inside their coffins, dark…

No one hears their wails.

Come closer, you who walk nearby,

Release us from this plane.

Our spirits now just ectoplasm

That death will not lay claim.

Sobbing now, we feel the chill

Of centuries gone by…

Please rescue us, oh mortal ones…

You see…we did not die.

Mystery of the Missing Pill


Mystery of the Missing Pill


So, being the usual klutz that I am, there was a small incident last evening.

I knocked my weekly pill container off the cabinet, and all the little doors opened and out spilled all the pills, on the floor.

I immediately gathered them all up and put them back (after wiping them off!) in the separate places, but one was missing.

Now, each day has 2 pills, one for morning and one for evening. I don’t usually forget to take one, so they should all be an even number in the container. But, one was missing!

I looked, and looked, all over the kitchen, where they fell. Still couldn’t find that one missing pill. It was gone somewhere. It wasn’t a big deal, as I have more I can take, but I didn’t want the cat to accidentally eat one.

And, it bugs me to think why would there be only one pill in one segment, when I know I put the right amount in all of them when I renewed the weeks worth.

So, where is the missing pill? I still haven’t found it! Did it fall through a black hole, or into another dimension, or a parallel universe. Will it show up at a later date? I’ve dropped lots of things before, such as an earring, and it was totally gone, but then showed up later. Why is this? I blame my house ghost of taking things all the time, which is a fact. Maybe they wanted to try out my medicine?

Well, you can see how my thoughts always turn to the mysterious conclusions. No secrets there, as that’s just how I am.

Meanwhile, I’ll wait and see what happens. 🙂

Spooky – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Organ


Spooky – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Organ

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 21/18


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “organ.” Talk about an organ or base your post on the theme of them … or one. Have fun!


So here we go, with the new prompt word of the week. It is ‘organ’.

I’ve been trying to think of something to say about this. I don’t want to write about organs, as in body, or organizations, or organizing, but I will.

Body organs = if they keep taking them out of me, I won’t have any left

Organizations = I don’t belong to any now, but I was a Girl Scout for awhile. That’s an organization.

Organizing = I can’t do it. I’m the most disorganized person you’ll ever know.

Now…oh yeah, I forgot about the musical instrument called an organ. I don’t play one. I do have a funny story about one, though.

Years ago, my friend and I were prowling around a big, historic local church. Just us. It was late at night. I don’t know why we were even in there, but we thought no one else was there, and it was dimly lit and spooky. We kept hearing strange and weird music coming from somewhere, so we started exploring. It sounded kind of pretty, but still spooky, when we didn’t think anyone else was there. We looked in all kinds of rooms, up stairs and down in the basement, into shadowy corners, and nooks and crannies. Finally, we found where it was coming from. Some person was playing a giant pipe organ. I guess they were practicing for church services, I don’t know. They didn’t notice us peeking at them, even though we watched for awhile.

At least we thought that’s what and who we saw. Could have been a ghost musician for all we knew. We got out of there, and didn’t speak of it to anyone else.

My True Ghost Story for Halloween


My True Ghost Story for Halloween  


This is a true ghost story. It happened in the house we live in now.


Levitate, levitation, levitating…to rise or float in the air esp. in seeming defiance of gravitation; the act or process of levitating – esp. the rising or lifting of a person or thing by means held to be supernatural.

Our bedroom mirror levitated…by itself!

We’ve lived here in this house for quite a few years, now, and we are only the second family to have lived here. We met the previous owners, and they are not weird, and no horrible thing ever occurred in this house, that we were made aware of. It’s just that the paranormal seems to follow me around, no matter which house I’m in.

The mirror in question, was a used one…one of those kind of tall ones that fit onto a dresser. It wasn’t bolted on, though, just propped up against the wall, and dresser top. The dresser was covered with all kinds of junk that accumulates, such as papers, bills, a glass lazy-susan that held coins, pens, watches, and miscellaneous items. There was a box of papers, a piggy bank, a belt, some cards…well, the whole top was covered in stuff.

I was sitting in the dining room, doing some scrap booking. The bedroom where the mirror was, was one wall away and in front of me. We have four cats, but they were all sleeping in the far back bedroom. It was quiet in the house…no TV on, no music playing. Suddenly, I hear a terrible crash coming from the bedroom. I went to see what it was. I found that the mirror had fallen onto the carpeted floor, and shattered.

What was so strange was that absolutely nothing in the bedroom or on top of the dresser had been disturbed at all! Not one thing had fallen off to the floor. There was no way the mirror could have just fallen frontwards in the first place, because of all the stuff on the top of the dresser. It couldn’t have slipped from the bottom, either, as it would have knocked off the stuff.

All I can believe, is that somehow, the only way…the only way this happened, was that the mirror levitated itself, going up and over the things, silently, then turned itself sideways to the dresser, then crashed down onto the floor. That’s when I heard the crash! I ran in, and saw it laying on the floor, sideways to the dresser, mirror glass side down…on carpet. The sound of breaking glass had been loud, though!

What is also surprising, is that it did not scare me at all. I was just like, well, gotta clean up the glass shards. I’ve gotten so used to objects flying around the houses I’ve been in, that it has become the normal thing. I had a bit of a time, trying to get that mirror up off the floor, as it was pretty heavy. I couldn’t just lift it up and take it out. I had to drag it all the way through the house and out to the garage. It stayed out there for a long, long time; we just recently got rid of it. Nothing else ever happened with it.

That incident was only one of several, here in this house. I’ll tell more in another post, and also things that happened in other houses I’ve lived in.

Hope your household goods stay put, because mine sure don’t!

Creaky floors

Creaky doors

Noisy ghosts abound

Graveyard near

Fuels your fear

Ghosts do swirl around

Skritchy scratch

Unlocked latch

A eerie, ghostly sound

Draw the curtain

Must be certain

Ghosts remain underground

House so creaky

Ghosts so freaky

Try not to come unwound


For dVerse Poets – Quadrille # 43 (write to the prompt word ‘creak’, and use only 44 words)

Wisdom from a Chair?




Me: pacing the floor.

Chair: There she goes, again.

Me: looking out the back door, watching rain come down in torrents.

Chair: She thinks pacing and looking out the door will help.

Me: looking out the front door, watching rain come down, flooding the yard and street.

Chair: Hey, stop with the pacing, already!

Me: stops in front of the TV to check weather radar

Chair: Yeah, it’s raining out there, settle down!

Me: looking in junk drawer for flashlight, checking for batteries, not finding any.

Chair: (sigh) Would you just come sit down? I’m nice and comfortable.

Me: looking around the room. “Did someone say something?”

Chair: Oops…

Me: speaking to room, “Okay, you ghosts, I know you’re there.”

Chair: Sheesh, she blames everything on the house ghosts.

Me: jumping at the sound of crashing thunder. “That was close. Come on, Cricket, let’s go hide.”

Chair: I give up.

For Nano Poblano and National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo)



“Please Introduce Yourself”

Hellloooo! Don’t mean to scare you, but I am the nice lady’s Spirit Candle. I’m happy to be here at her house, and I’ve been here at least a year or so. I haven’t played any tricks on her…yet! haha… Anyway, here’s my story. The nice lady wrote it a pretty long while ago, and I like it, because it’s all about me! 🙂


I have this candle. It sits on the shelf in my living room, in a square, glass jar. It is red, smells good, like spice, and is named “Christmas Spirit”. I’ve had it awhile, but have never lit it. My sister gave it to me because she was scared of it.

You may think that’s a strange reason to gift me with the candle, but I don’t. She knows I love all weird and paranormal things, and this candle had been acting ‘weird’ over at her house. I think she’d bought it at a yard sale, along with some others, a long time ago. She had this one and the others sitting out on her kitchen table, as she was thinking of getting rid of them, now.

She gave me the candle, and told me this spooky story about it. … She was sitting at her table, early one morning, while the house was quiet. She was sipping her coffee, when all of a sudden, the glass lid on the ‘Spirit’ candle popped off with a loud noise, and flew off across the room. It landed quite a distance away, but didn’t break. She was lucky it did not hit her, as it went flying by. There was no rational reason for the lid to come off the glass jar. The table was not jiggled, the room was an even temperature, and the lid had been securely fastened down on top of the jar. She had never burned the candle, either.

So, that’s why she was scared of it…maybe it was possessed, or would do it again at any given moment. Anyway, now I have it. I’ve been waiting for it to do something else…hoping it would flip it’s lid again…anything. I thought that being over here, at my house, with the resident spirits and ghosts, would trigger an incident, but so far it hasn’t. I wish it would.

Could it be that the ‘spirits’ in the Christmas candle are happier now, being around others of it’s kind? I don’t know, but if it does do anything else strange, I’ll let you know.
