Ghost

Photo Copyright Jody N. Coughlin 2016

I thought I saw a ghost
in a gown of white.
Gliding down the red bricked path.
On my birthday night.

Nothing was there
when I stopped
and 
stared,
though I looked
and 
I looked 
and 
I looked.

I did not feel fear
with that ghost
so near.

I only felt
curiously 
good.

We train our eyes

to become blind

to the things

our hearts 

know

to be 

true. 


I do not think
we 
should.

Do you?
