The Ghost in My House

When Grandma died I inherited things, jewelry, dishes, furniture and a doll; I loved all 'cause I am a person who clings, the best was her rocking chair and shawl. It became clear that the chair had a ghost, you guessed it, Grandma had come along; but I did not mind and could see her almost, and often I heard her singing an old song. A friend who claims to see ghosts came to visit, walking around she stood by the chair; she was staring and I whispered can you see it, and turned to me saying there is a pair. A pair? Whatever do you mean dear friend, well, it seems your Grandma brought her cat; oh, do not be afraid as into your life they will blend, so, I have a ghost with a cat- wearing a hat ! __________________________ January 13, 2022 Poetry/Rhyme/The Ghost in My House Copyright Protected, ID 01-1421-165-13 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, A Ghost Story sponsor, Angela Tune, HM, Judged 01/13/2022

Wonderful, Constance. Jerri had her favorite spots in our house, and she always brought along her dog. I do very much believe your Grandma was in that chair with her cat. How anyone can deny the reality and presence of spirits is beyond me!

Milt, thanks for the visit and comment, oh yes Grandma and Snowball are here I am certain of that but I have no fear, I was very close to Grandma, she is the reason I am a writer, she would say "Write it, write it for the world to read" ~ friendship and poetry _Constance
