Light Ghost.

The time for my bed had come

So up the stairs I went,

The day had been a good one

My time had been well spent.


As I closed the curtains

I looked out to the night,

And what I saw below me

Gave me such a fright.


There  walking up my street

Was a face covered in light,

No body seemed to be there

Just this face in the night.


I looked with wary eyes

Scared and shaking to the bone,

Then I saw what happened,

A man was looking at his ‘phone.

        On review, just in case there's any ambiguity, Andy - this one really did it for me. Those walking the streets heads bent into their machines really bug me, That, since I don't go out much at night is all I really know. The idea of same activity at night made me see them as all ghosts anyway....They are not in the here and now, that is for sure.

          If he did it would have been his own fault.

            Interesting how tired eyes seem to see odd things. Love the song A Summer's Place. Great write Andy.

              Nods of agreement at reading your piece of exposure dear Andy - those with phones to their ears give me a right scare in daylight not to mention their appearance in darkness.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Fay, they just do not care and miss so much that is happening around them.
