The Path of Ghosts – a poem by Antoni Ooto

The Path of Ghosts

huge night unwraps what folds silently
in the half light quivering
in the evening mist

losing the sense of day
the sound,
a different place to sway

familiar specters
with an eye to the next path
moving along losing a little

feeling the world roll beneath
knowing others are present
and coming, coming gently

so long a way from the start
