The Proximity to a Ghost

Updated on November 18, 2015
Source

There was a moment of silence,

when the chilled air rose up around us,

yellow light poured out of the window,

drenching the air around the house,

coating,

then there was a momentary sensation of floating,

becoming unmoved from life,

no fear,

just amazement,

a ghost with a milky smear

appeared,

gentle, soft, kind,

then disappeared.
