A Ghostly Air - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

Was that a breath of cold air
I felt as I drove about in my car,
Or was it just the end of summer heat
That soon would be in full retreat?

Maybe, just maybe, it was you
That hovers nearby in the blue
To give me a quick brush of phantom breath
That could be life, or maybe death?

Or is it just a sense that somethings wrong
That makes one write a poem or a song
To answer an unasked question, fair
Are you here or are you there?

    Of course I was attracted by the word ghost.
    An intriguing and truthful poem about inspiration
    and purpose, two very tricky and intangible subjects. (Report) Reply

    Now as I begin to read more of your work I feel a very deep soul open and
    sharing and so wonderful to ponder over your creation here. I really love
    this one.................. I gave it a ten even though I usually don't leave a point grade
    But this one really needs more recognition I think.... Many would love to read this.
    I hope to see more similar to it as I continue to read your art.......... Jim Troy (Report) Reply
