Ghosts Along the Border, from the afterlife

WHO SAID IT’S ABOUT TIME?

Look for the Ghostly Spirit in the Mirror

Yes, spirits woke me at 3 a.m. and said, “C’mon, get up and write the story!” I ran into friends who said, “Is the book finished yet?” So, I’m announcing now, “YES, the latest book on ghostly experiences from our neck of the woods (Warren Co.NC & Southside VA) is ready for you!

            This time the book expands to share stories with you about messages from those who have passed away into the afterlife and sent signs back to the loved ones they left behind. What a joy! To know that your mom, dad, friend, family member, etc. is doing fine in a place you don’t know about yet.

I Came Upon This Door

Our recent program “A Gathering of Artists & Poets” was a huge success with 59 people in attendance. This is one of my paintings with poem to compliment it. Please enjoy.

I Came Upon This Door

When roaming a medieval town
I came upon this door,
by accident, I thought
tucked into
a hidden lane
a short distance away,
it summoned me
come closer, enter after knocking

I remembered it, but how? I have never been here before

The lamp bid me as welcome
as a candle in a window
it felt familiar
as I paused
letting my senses
respond,
to warn or
to comfort I did not know.

But I felt I had been here before, a long, long time ago.

The knocker beckoned
my hand to grasp
let it fall,
send echoes
down the hall
of stone
cold
secretive, empty

with stories to tell of other times amidst this forgotten pall

As memories came to mind
visions of men, women
revealed to me,
I wondered
what string or crumbs
brought me here
to revive
those stories of long ago

of those folks, kindred who must not be left, thoughtlessly, behind
