OLWG #34 – Spirits

 Written for OLWG #34



Shadorma

Shhh, listen
do you hear those sounds?
High pitched and
tortured wails,
the hollow sounds of dying.
Now, only poppies.

 

American Sentence

Sometimes on nights like this I can hear the songs of ghosts in the cotton.


This week’s prompts are only one:

  1. ghosts in the fields

Don’t think! Write!
You have 25 minutes but if it takes longer – just don’t tell anyone.

  1. Both so evocative, especially the first. I make a point of not reading your posts until I have tackled the prompts. Still, it seems we went to similar places.

  2. Ah, the sounds of nature, natural or not…
    like the almost cricket chirp of some electronics that just started up… that Hubby seems to think is normal. I wonder if it will go away as mysteriously as it appeared?

    Nice poetics. 😉
