calmly she swims in

the lake of oblivion

salt laden tears fall

Colleen Chesebro #Weekly Poetry Challenge NO. 54. Ghost & haunt

The three ghosts appeared

each a haunting tale to tell

their messages plain

Let us watch the tale unfold

and witness transformation

 

Memories only

haunt these ancient hallowed halls.

Ghosts in the mind

Longing in his heart

pressing need to regain faith.

Path to redemption

No. 2

Deep within our hearts
are needs basic and urgent

primeval passions

never forgotten

Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge #Haiku #Tanka #Haibun Spirit and Joy

haiku

May the Holy Spirit

bring you joy everlasting

by the Grace of God

tanka

Typically British, don’t you know

A cricket fan’s joy

lies in seeing the two teams

playing by the rules.

As players we should always

keep the Spirit of the game.

Haibun

The Queen, God bless her

A toast to bring joy to all

of British spirit

On the occasion of the announcement of a major Royal event, such as engagement to marriage, the birth of a child or significant Royal birthday it was customary for a signal  to be transmitted to all serving members of the British Armed Forces wherever they were, be it on ships or on land in all corners of the world. The signal was generated and was usually personal from Her Majesty The Queen inviting all to join with her in celebration. The instruction would be given to, “Splice the mainbrace!” All were then entitled to draw a free drink which had to be consumed immediately and generally accompanied by the toast as described above. In a true spirit of cameraderie, great joy was felt by all at her generosity.
