Poem - Aging

The poem “The Ghosts” is a heavily coded consideration of life.

The Ghosts

The ghosts are there
as you will see
now tangible
to sympathies
awaken them
to dance along
the bona fide

now memories
evoke specters
beyond their grasp
still they seek
while still knowing
none shall be found

just turn away
lest hope deludes
the questing ones
without small hope
it’s for the best
that life dissuades
them from the goal
of being real

before too long
the haunt will fade
without support
from living souls
then on that day
the gods will laugh
another senior
put in their place.
