Weds poetry prompt: ‘Lost to Dust’


Yesterday’s prompt :Write a poem using at least 3 of the following 6 words:

  1. ghost
  2. crack
  3. free
  4. hand
  5. check
  6. know

(managed to use all 6, as highlighted below 🙂 )

Lost to Dust

She steps soundlessly
Through ancient dust
Checking for faint signs
Of others like herself
The lost and forgotten
Slipping through the cracks
Of mere mortal memory
And became poor ghosts
With no name or history.
Her own is now clouded,
The end by her own hand
With no final note left
And no one to ever know.
She accepts this sad loss
But shows souls the way
In hope of setting another free.
