    Just a little ghost story to start the day. Remember to tell your people you love them everyday, you just never know. Peace and Love.

    Starting the Day

    Today seemed to start as any other would
    But no sunlight was pouring through the windows as it should

    After making my morning coffee to drink
    Rinsing off last nights dishes I began to think

    I seem to remember loud bangs and flashes
    But of this I'm not for sure

    Pouring my cup of java into my favorite cup
    Seems to be mechanical and not really what I want

    I wander down the hall trying to remember who I am
    That's when the dizzynious starts to set in

    Sitting in the hallway up against the wall
    Voices I can hear talking softly not saying much at all

    The wheels of gurney squeak loudly and harsh
    As they head towards me taking someone from the house

    I try to cry out and ask what is going on
    But no sound comes and they walk through me and are gone

    I do hear some man saying this hall is rather chilly
    I'm glad they left the coffee pot on

    Me either. Just having some fun with words.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
