Ghost Whispers - Poem by Dulakshi Wakista

Oh! night arrived
At black midnight
The leaves fluttered and
The trees quivered
The wind blew with rage
Birds shrieked and shrieked.....
Thunder there was on high
White and crimson fires
Lurking, looming far away...
It was a dismal darkest day
Heavy rain gulped the nature
Oh! I bewildered
Alone I was at home
Suddenly, the light failed
Doomed-I!
Lit a candle
The clock struck twelve.....
Through the window I peeped
The bamboo bushes rustling
At once I stared
A feeling of fancy seized me
The scamper foot steps approaching
Flabbergasted!
Ghost haunted infront of me
I petrified...

    The scamper foot steps approaching
    Flabbergasted!
    Ghost haunted infront of me
    I petrified... And our hearts stop with you. Excellent conclusion!

    From melancholy to horrified arena where the shadows of the undeath unleash their horcus porcus, we stood still, whisper to each other, like the ghost whispers.Great writes Dulakshi! ! (Report)Reply
