Forget me not

What do you see #40

The world beyond the veil
The veil not many know
If ye be spiritual
Ye must believe
If ye be not
Ye need only to feel

Do you sense it at times
Do you notice
Those odd things that happen
When what’s even is not given
When one does not pacify
The spirits on the other side…

Gran’s favourite room!
Gran’s finest china!
Once each month without fail
She laid it without question
My child! She would say
When I’m gone, you must do the same
Each full moon
You must soothe the spirits of this house!

I did not believe
But I did it anyway
For her dying wishes
Meant so much to me
And while I did
All was normal
Until I didn’t
Then everything changed…

The walls came alive
Tainted in shadows
The windows rattled
And the kitchen cabinets shook with anger
All the cutlery shattered
All,
Save that finest china

So, quickly I hastened to lay it
Pristine as Gran used to
Appeasing the spectres from beyond!

Other world
Where Ying turns to Yang
Forget Me Not!


Do you believe in the paranormal?

I hope you enjoy this.
Stay safe everyone, stay cautious.

  1. This had an eerie feel to it Jude. Have heard a few such episodes from elders in the family.

      Yeah, it’s something Ive been thinking about. I’m yet to know someone who has actually seen, tho that doesn’t mean that the omens elders interprete are baseless, so I decided to write about it this week. Sadje’s prompt really slotted in nicely

    Ahhhh Jude better not dis obey grandma’s dying wish..lol..

    Brilliant take on the prompt..

    I believe that some things are beyong our reason to explain..and not because we cant make a logical explaination that doesnt mean it doesnt exist.

      Yeah, it’s a very gray area. I think there’s some form of paranormal but no idea which one it is

    Amazingly beautiful. My grandma use to believe that the spirits of loved ones visit us every friday and she use to make something sweet that day. I never believed it though. But this poem reminded me of my childhood and grandma. Great work 👍🏻

    It’s a haunting photo! But I first thought about it was a tea party! I focused on the china, but reading your poem I looked around and I see that isn’t a party kind of photo!

    Eerie for sure. Believe?..hmm there’s always a tussle between the scientific mind and the unproven beliefs.

      There’s something about dreams and memory and subconscious that feels like beyond science or maybe on another frequency

    I really enjoyed your take on this image. Paranormal exists, only a few experience it. Thanks for joining in the challenge this week Jude.
