The Ghost of Me

(My most recent attempt at a poem.  I hope you enjoy it.)

The Ghost of Me

I found you…

In the most unexpected of places

In forget-me-nots in wild spaces

In a blue dress drying in the open air

And the simple words of a humble prayer

In silver hair bands intertwined

And the happy sigh of a contented mind

In pink-flowered pillows

And the purr of a cat

In the grace of the willows

And a black, velvet hat

In the passing scent of lilacs in the air

And the warm embrace of another’s care

In the sun-filled rays of inspiration

And the stormy winds of imagination

I found you again…

The little ghost of me

And I found once more

A joy in the journey.

  1. Sometimes, I read something so beautiful, so close to what my own heart is feeling, or wanting to feel, that I am at a loss for words. This was precious, and stunning, and I am crying for all sorts of reason. Good reasons. This was amazing, my dear Melissa. ❤
