Faking Fearless Sleep..



Written for Haiku Heights
Prompt: Ghosts


Faking Fearless Sleep..

In childhood's dark nights
With wide open eyes, I would
Draw ghosts out of trees..

Seeing one dance near
I would shut the eyes tight, yeh, 
Faking fearless sleep..


RS :)

  6. These lines reminded me of my daughter when she was young, afraid
    of the ghost that only she could see at the time.
    Thanks for the sweet memory.

  8. only a child can believe that he actually is pulling the ghost out of the trees, and they are not doing it of their own volition.
