Between

     Ghosts. Do you believe? Here’s what I think.

Enjoy your Sunday,

Jake.

           Ghosts! Real or Imagined

Ghosts!
Real or Imagined?

BETWEEN

Their spirits wander still, they say

as they did back in their living day,

when feeling, breathing, beings were

before death’s visit on him or her,

and their bodies, in the ground did lay.

*

Seen by some, but to some just air

a feeling only that they’re there.

A thing or two that’s out-of-place,

or a fleeting vapor with a face.

Or an empty, moving, rocking chair.

*

Spirits restless, young and old

and their signal is an eerie cold,

warning all who enter there

some with a gentle pull of hair,

while some, a lot more bold.

*

Some are playful, some are mean

some, can make the brave man scream.

But they’re just the same as they were before

while trying to reach that farther shore.

Yet remaining in between.
