Follow Me

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Photo Challenge #118

Folllow Me

– Brooke Shaden


Follow me, she said,

In her dress of blue.

Yes, I will, I said,

I will follow you

In the traces of your footsteps

Imprinted in the sand,

Reaching, ever reaching,

For your ghostly hand.

Overhead the seagulls turned

Into the bitter breeze,

A reminder of my sister’s cries

As she drowned in winter seas.
