The branches

of the tree

flail the air

grasping at the form




to embrace it

a thousand times


greedy talons


to hold it close

but nothing

touches the


shadow shape


you can’t

hold on

to a ghost

  1. I just came back from Wales to find your poem posted on the ‘ghost’ Quadrille. Thank you so much for sharing it. I love the way you have portrayed debris as the ghost of something that was once alive – and I love trees! The form of the poem fits the meaning so well, too. We only have a few weeks and we’ll be having a two-week break over at dVerse, so it would be great if you come on over for the prompts and challenges we have to offer for the rest of June!
