I have seen lots of ghost in my life time. As a matter of fact, I see them almost every night...We all do.

Seeing Ghosts and Thinking Nothing of it


Seeing Ghosts and Thinking Nothing of it

Yes,
Yes I do,
I believe
In ghosts.
I have see them,
I see them
All the time,
I think
We all do.

We Close Our Minds


It’s just
That we have
Been taught
To close our eyes,
And minds
To them
For so long
That we have become blind
To all the Ghosts
We see.

Directors Make Them


Directors make them,
Film preserves them,
And we keep collections
Of all
Their haunting’s
In a box
Or cabinet
Below our Blue Ray
Video machines.

All Our Old Time Favorites


All our old time favorites
Are stored there,
Stewart, Bogart, Wayne, Hepburn
And so many,
Many more
And we see them
In the early morning
Hours,
When we can’t sleep…So shush now,
Don’t make a peep.

We See Them


Or we see them
In the late afternoon
With a bowl of popcorn
On our lap,
Or all through
The long and drawn-out
Star-light-night,

Just you and your sweet.

On the Television


We see them
On the television
And I-Pod screens
Whenever we become
Too bored to dream

And on the big
Silver screens
As the re-runs
Go round and round,
When we take
That special night out
On the town

At Long Last


And when
At long last
We finally do see them
With our own eyes
We think
Nothing of it

As we stumble through
Our own life
And our own fate…Filmed
And entertained
Through each
Pictured step
We take.

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

Ghosts are all in the minds of individuals. If you let them exist, then they will exist.

Thanks Roselyn, but I was talking about the ghosts we see on film, those actors and actresses who have passed.
