Shadows and Mist

Picture courtesy of

The leaves fall
and apples bob
As bats fly
flitting above
And shadows and mist
do play and dance
As you turn
a backwards glance

Sure you are of
being watched
From outside your
window, vegetable plot
But shrug it off
you do
Putting it down to
autumn blues

But as you walk
Something reaches
from the grave
Behind the window
she tries to touch
This spirit who
has lost so much…
