The Ghost

#promptuarium

The key turned in the door

and we entered the house

empty chambers

random left behind furniture

nothing but a mouse

We played in the garden

my sister and i

and then, in a minute

we saw him fly

Hiding in the cupboards

in the bedrooms he’d fly

he’d pop up from the floorboards

just to say hi

he’d play games in the bedrooms

and splash about in the bath

and watch tv while making pictures

sometimes leaving a path

And though he’d appear to me and my sis

with mum and dad he’d go away

waiting for a time, when the late night chimed

for him to come and play

Man in the middle

expecting to receive a

defininate message

in the air around him

unless he’s disturbed

messages from the angels and spirits come quick

Basket

Halloween pumpkin basket

#fowc #basket

behind each little basket on Halloween night

a little munchkin , male or female, in a

spooky costume, and as the treats

keep on coming this receptacle

eventually fills all the way to the top

toffees, sweets and chocolates for spooky visitors

Grandfather always wondered

How every time his favourite granddaughter visited

Out in the garden, the traps stayed empty – and

Something furry was nibbling at his prize vegetables

They all seemed to reside by the tree at the back – where the children’s

Swing rested on a branch – his granddaughters favourite spot

Eerie

Eerie

Entering an empty house can be

Enough to make the most brave of people shiver

Rickety gates and floorboards don’t half make a noise

If the wind travels over them, it’s like something is there

Expecting you, but there’s nothing to be seen

Little Ghost II

Ghost

Good Gravy!  It’s cold – said the wolf to his chums

Home’s where we should be, where its not so glum – So

Over to the old haunted house they to go as their

Shivering and eerie forms they glow

Tonight they’ll meet up with their friend for some tea

(and fly around the top of the house for free)

Little Ghost

A poem in response to the prompt

Ghost

A little ghost went out to play

but found the children ran away

when he appeared that hallowed night

and wondered what gave them a fright

He’d been sat all alone in that old spooky house

with no one to speak to but a passing mouse

who after seeing our friend with a squeak

ran off quickly with nowt but an eeek!

But then one night of All Hallows’ eve

an old black cat, was playing in leaves

he had spotted the little ghosts ghostly head

and decided to play in his house instead.

And the old black cat, brought his chums along too,

chanting and wailing and all going boo!

And the ghosties and ghouls that lived round the place

made friends with the ghost with the bluish white face

So when you see trails on All Hallows’ eve

dont be frightened or worried and just believe

as the ghosts have their tea at little ghosts place

the one where the host has a bluish white face

Little Ghost’s Tale

A little ghost came out to play
but found the children ran away
When he appeared that Hallowed Night
He wandered what gave them a fright

He’d been alone in that old spooky house,
with no one to talk to but a passing mouse
who after seeing little ghost wi a squeak
ran off quickly with an eek!

But then one night of New Years Eve,
an old black cat, were playing in leaves…
He spotted little ghosts ghostly head
and decided to play in his house instead.

And the old black cat, brought his chums too
chanting and wailing and all going BOO!
and the ghosties and ghouls all round the place
made friends with the ghost wi’ the bluish white face

So when you see trails on All Hallows Eve,
Don’t be frightened, Don’t worry, Just believe
as the ghosts have their tea at Little Ghosts Place,
the one where the host has a bluish white face

The Little Ghosts Tale

This piece appeared in the forward poetry anthology “Darkest Before Dawn”.  Thought i’d share it here….

A little ghost came out to play
but found the children ran away
When he appeared that Hallowed Night
He wandered what gave them a fright

He’d been alone in that old spooky house,
with no one to talk to but a passing mouse
who after seeing little ghost wi a squeak
ran off quickly with an eek!

But then one night of New Years Eve,
an old black cat, were playing in leaves…
He spotted little ghosts ghostly head
and decided to play in his house instead.

And the old black cat, brought his chums too
chanting and wailing and all going BOO!
and the ghosties and ghouls all round the place
made friends with the ghost wi’ the bluish white face

So when you see trails on All Hallows Eve,
Don’t be frightened, Don’t worry, Just believe
as the ghosts have their tea at Little Ghosts Place,
the one where the host has a bluish white face.
