Ghost Whisper

Ghost Whisper

The death chilling winds
Blow up from the south
The earth engulfs in fog
The lights from the street
Sends luminous images
Dancing in the fog light

The images arises
In the heat of the night
Looming tall
Stacking and whispering
The icebergs crack
As the voice sings out

The image glassy
Transparent
Floating in the moon light
As the winds wisps by
The images take on a new life
Transforming

Evolving
Coming to life
The claw shaped hands
Reach out
Touching your soul

Dragging you deep below
The whispers frost your eyes
The blow glues them shut
Your hands are frozen in space
The image holds you beneath his grace

Your soul is beholden
To this whisper
Transformed into its image
Your bones become brittle
From the frozen state
Your life sinks out of you
Frozen in space

Ice starts to form
On your hands and face
This frozen image
Transforms you into a new place
Your lips seep ice drops
As you try to speak

The words that escape
Are frozen in space
Your life is affricated
Drunken and molten
The heart burns inside
The volcano trying to explode

The heat rises
Deep inside
The force is so great
The cold try to escape
With the next blow of the wind
The volcano erupts

Spilling in its place
The mutton liquid
That freezes in place
The cold holds you prisoner
In the dead of the night

The ghost whisper
Passes through this place
Your life is renewed
As the heat seeps in
The fire starts to burn
Deep within

The curse looses it hold
As you fight and hold
The image of life
Behind your frozen shut eyes
Your will for life
Saves you from this place

  1. goodness gracious…you had my heart beating a little heavy there…maybe i was just trying to breathe…whew…now i have a chill…you capture the feeling well…i was in it…great piece…

    • Thank you so much. I am so happy that you stopped by and read this I was introduced to this site by Shawna and wanted to try this challenge. I thought it would be interesting to see what I could do with this. I am happy that it drew you in and gave you chills. I think that was what I was aiming for when I wrote this. I read what a thrid eye could see or do and I thought this was a very interesting idea.

  2. “Your life is affricated Drunken and molten The heart burns inside” … Ann, if anyone has a third eye, it is YOU! I’m glad you joined in!

    • Shawna I am happy you like this. I just wrote this now as my Grand daugher was having her birthday party and all the kids were screaming in the back ground. I think it turned out well for a short piece and one that I wrote on the spur of the moment. Thank you. I am happy you posted the challenge and would like to try a few more. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed this. Thank you for pointing the way to this new site.

      • How on earth did you write this with all those distractions?! You are amazing. : ) … Check out this site too: http://gooseberrygoespoetic.blogspot.com/2011/08/poetry-picnic-week-1-adam-and-eve.html … They are doing weekly challenges as well. Last week, the theme was “Adam and Eve.” Next week (starting tomorrow or Monday, I suppose), the theme will be “The Kiss” … something on first kisses, I think. There’s a reference to a Klimt painting, but I haven’t checked it out yet. I hope you join this one as well!

      • Thanks Shawna. I have no idea how I wrote this. But before I posted it I asked my daughter to read it and she liked it. So I took the challenge and posted it. I will check out this other site now. I think this seems like fun to try and write for a challenge. I was almost going to submit the one I had done about my brother but then decided to try a new one. So I thought of this and came up with this one.

  3. Ann, I enjoyed the subject matter and the way you expressed the unseeable in this poem. The closing two lines are quite excellent.

    • Thank you so much Richard. I am not sure what inspired me to write this one. I read the challenge and saw demons and soul. I think it was that one post I did before where there was a conflict between sole and soul. So this time I did not miss the meaning of soul. But allowing the demon to hold you and trap you is one that can not happen. The escape for life is what I wanted to try and show here. I had fun writting this.

  4. Grim and frightening images here… That will to live, and escape is good towards the end.

    Nice to meet you at D’verse ~

    • Thank you so much Heaven. I read you poem for the challenge. It was so well written. I really enjoyed it so much. I am very happy that you liked this piece. I tried to understand and attempt to capture the third eye.

  5. dang…outside the sun is shining and i feel all frozen in by your words…excellent capture of these feelings…

    • Thank you so much for reading. I am very happy that Shawna told me about this site. I tried to understand and capture the challenge. I am so happy to do this challenge. It was amazing all of the others poems I had read. They were all so good and very well written. I was not sure if mine would hold up with them. I am so happy that you found my site and read this.

  6. Kind of chilling… a dark brittle frozen world, yet deep within the burning heart continues to beat… willing one from the icy depth.

    Powerful piece.

  7. Ann…you’ve gone beyond the third eye…you’ve lifted the entire veil! Great running take at the prompt. Well done!

    • Thank you so much. I am so happy that you have read this. I like the idea of the poetry challenge and creating a piece from a topic or subject. It gives you a change to let your ideas flow in a new directions. I think I will try more of the poetry challenges and have subscribed to the site. I think this is a wonderful idea and very creative. I am sorry it was not Sarah who wrote this it was Ann LeFlore. This site has 4 different writter on it. At the end of each post I indicate the person who has written each piece. Thank you so much and I am so happy that you read this poem.

  8. Brr..you really made me feel the cold with this one! You are quite a poet!

    • Thanks Anna. I guess I never considered myself a poet before. I have just tried a new way to write and I am starting to enjoy this expression so much. I am happy that you liked this so well.
