And What Use Shall We Find For The Haunted House?

And what use shall we find for the haunted house? 
Can we sell it or rent it with a clear conscience? 

You carry on with the task of emptying cupboards and drawers. 
Things turn up. Shades that cast no shadows. 

With a finger you draw a white circle. 
It seems to be working 

the season, if not the house, 
reluctant to give up the ghost.

  1. just bizarre, Jonathan, I literally just a couple of hours ago went for a walk, and on the walk composed a poem called "ghost story"......I wont copy it here, but I'll email you the very rough draft.....the synchronicity here sorta stopped me in my tracks....
