The Ghost

The ABC Wednesday Train passes through the haunted town of G this week, and I just happen to see one of its residents as I pass by.



For ABC Wednesday – G for Ghost

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. What a bumbling, jumbling, fumbling ghost!! ๐Ÿ˜€
    Not to mention he’s sort of forgetful too… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Lovely poem and a friendly but shy ghost…
    Reminds me of someone I know… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. What a fun post for the G Day!! I love it!! And before much longer it will be the official Ghost day of Halloween! Time flies whether you’re having fun or not! Enjoy your day!

    • lol ๐Ÿ˜€ yeah.. but he’s a friendly ghost too Rameshji.. take him home for dinner ๐Ÿ˜‰ he’s hungry after reading such delicious comments.. hopin for more too.. he’ll get it hopefuly ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I love the ghost. Did you draw it? There are so many ways to post things to ABC Wednesday, so many I don’t know. I could probably write a poem (it’s been years) but I couldn’t draw a picture.
    Thanks for sharing the happy ghost of G town with us, Leo.

    • hi Kay ๐Ÿ™‚ glad u loved the ghost.. no I didn’t draw it. found it online and wrote the poem on the image using photshop ๐Ÿ˜€

      pleasure sharing the ghost town of G with ABCW ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Lovely poem, great contribution for the letter G ๐Ÿ™‚
    You said that Gundi means chubby in your language – what is your native tongue? Nanka told me that it means cute in her language (which I assume is Hindi).

    • thanks Jennifer ๐Ÿ˜€ glad u liked the contribution.. well, the native tongue is Kannada.. ๐Ÿ˜€ but I’m not so sure if it means chubby anymore.. well, a letter in English does make a big difference when pronounced in native tongues ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. What imagination!! Excellent! Totally loved the idea!!

    And the last couple of lines were just toooo good!!
    Just one accident, and that’s all it takes to make another ghost!!
    Hats off to yo, my friend! This one takes the cake!!!

  6. Yes, I thought of Casper too; he was a favorite in comics when I was a kid. I thought it was a good capture, seasonally appropriate, and very clever. Good job. Thanks, Gay

  7. Ah, Leo, your ghost is so cute, so human, I can so relate, even if not yet a ghost! Here in Asia many people believe in ghosts, in spirits, friendly and otherwise. A force to be reckoned with in our lives like any other challenge. Great take on the G theme.

    • hi Francisca.. I’m in Asia too… but I’m not much of a believer in ghosts.. ๐Ÿ˜€ perhaps, of souls in memories.. but not ghosts as such.. glad u liked my take on the G theme ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. This is one ghostly poem! I like it though!

    You are so creative, making remarkable shape poems!

    I did smile, even laugh when that ghost fell down naked! chuckles… :))

    Thumbs up for a job well done! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. wow nice one ๐Ÿ˜€
    not to visible though ๐Ÿ˜€
    but awesome usage of G words there ๐Ÿ˜€
    why shape poems so frequently ๐Ÿ˜‰
    in love with them ๐Ÿ˜›

  10. He (or she) seems a friendly enough ghost, not at all ghoulish. I think bumbling ghosts are the best sort. It’s a shame the mortal world is a graveyard for him ๐Ÿ˜‰
