Ghostly Laundry

the laughing laundry
as bed sheet ghosts run and twirl
dad sips his cold beer
children run around an round
ghosts chasing flowers edges

You tell a great story with few words, of warm autumn nights. It takes me back.

I like that "the laughing laundry" line and still kept the poem its shivers. Thanks for visiting. :D

What you did with the form here was a great pleasure to read. Vivid and evocative. And seasonal too! I went somewhere entirely different, and didn't even think of the seasonal aspect. Thank you for Jamming.

Oh Yes! My favorite Halloween memory is of my father throwing a sheet over himself ... waiting for us to walk home from trick or treating ... jumping out from behind bushes - in the dark! We were thoroughly terrified, then laughed the rest of the evening at his prank. At least I don't think I suffered any lasting trauma.
