The Ghosts of You and I


I liked the idea of the piku form when I saw it on Amy‘s blog, so that is today’s experiment. Let me know how I did.

The Ghosts of You and I

the ghost of
me
asked your ghost which

body to
choose
upon return

to this earth.
it
smiled and said not

to worry;
we
will find ourselves.

  1. Bee. this was beautiful. I loved the spirit of the poem itself; your embrace of a new form (my first time, too); and, most of all, the idea that ghosts will return and eventually find their way to their own essence. Lovely. Love, Amy

    • Thank you! Yes, that is exactly what I wanted to capture: the idea that our souls come back and find the people we were meant to find, to learn from and grow with and love. 🙂

  2. aww so sweet. loved they will be together again in the next life

  3. Bridget… I am no expert on form….but this form fit perfectly with your words. I really like the concept of eternally finding ourselves. This was really good….congratulations. Vb

  4. A lovely poem in its own right, but you also work the piku form rather well 🙂
