i hear
(from reliable sources)
ghosts are drawn to
christmas trees
showers of glimmering
color immerses beckons
relaxing temporarily released
from the bonds of afterlife
trusting lights to soothe
remnants of their souls
pretending they are blinking lights
rustling wrappers pulling ribbons
maladjusting rheostats
eating cookies
riding airwaves of song
reverberating through
tinsel tangling
then its gone
they re back to shades
of shallow shadows
wavering on the walls
(Mike O’Connell 11/12/17)
