#Tanka Tuesday 10/10/17…of #ghosts, #hauntings, #beauty and #dreams

early twilight

a seat in my late mother’s

chair, glimpsing her ghost

haunt me in every glimpse

of the mirror before me


For Colleen’s this week–ghost and haunt




beauty of your face

as I awaken from dreams

of losing you

a trial I may face someday

but not today


For Kiwinana’s weekly Tanka Prompt Challenge–beauty and dreams

  1. Frank, lovely poetry. I was moved by your Tanka and how you see your mother in your face each day. That’s quite beautiful, you know. Sorry I missed this. There was no link back to my post. No worries. I’ll add you now.
