#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge: #Poet’s choice

by one
they leave me
the hall of souls
has become too quiet
so many want new lives
the Hall cannot be empty
some lives on earth will be cut short
time taken from them will be returned
all life and death must be kept in balance…

Buried Ghosts… #Poetry

Buried Ghosts

Mountains high
Old dark scars
Black tar rivers run
High castle walls
Lords and Ladies having fun
Unearthly sounds split the night
Warning went unaided
Fools entered
Swallowed by dark inner walls
Never would angels enter
Indoor evil attracts its own
Walls scarred by sounds new, swell
Souls buried in old castle mortar
Too long they lie forgotten
Names scratched on walls
Calling out dates to remember
No visitors heeding
Their hearts unturned
By old news…
