Ghosts

Ghosts of moments from our past linger just beyond reach. Those we once held dearly, now we silently beseech. Silvery memories of that first love-- now but sighs on the wind, near a secret place where, long ago, broken hearts would begin. Ghosts of a love, once captured but escaped in the quiet. Childrens' whispers, giggles faded to echoes in the night. Ghosts hold the stories of lives almost spent-- ghosts of memories that remain where, once, our dreams were sent. Originally submitted October, 2021 Reworked and submitted January 23,2022 for A Brian Strand (1058) Poetry Contest

In retrospect, I think I didn't put the info. at the bottom, like we were supposed to. I think I put it in the place for descriptions of poem. How dumb can I be!

Thanks, Harry. It just wasn't what the sponsor was looking for.

Thanks, Andrea. It didn't. I think it probably wasn't long enough. I just discovered your Tanka, "Fireflies." It's so beautiful.

Thanks, Kim. I imagine she's looking for funny poems, though.
