Brevity Halloween Poetry

Ghostly

Appearances in a darkened room
can be deceptive to the naked eye

Old Cats, (and sometimes bats)
fly through an old house (in search of a mouse)

At night, in the light, of a midnight moon
it’s not only Owls that fly

So don’t take flight – when something white
suddenly shows up, at night.

(It’s only the old owner, passing by.)

Container of time

Locking tumblers and cogs

Over days months and years

Cover the movement of hands – hear them tick!

Keeping watch for Father Time as

Sand passes through his timer
