Possessive Tints

Paint, we vowed,
would negate the haunting,
make the house our own –
selected with care:
sage green and dust of pink –
sanded and scraped,
pulled back baseboards…
same colours there –
ghosts had penetrated
our psyches.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. Phenomenal … but then maybe you were called to this house because you were in synch with its ghosts. Maybe it selected you, rather than vice versa?
    Is this a recalled experience … or is Ric feeling so much better he’s painting the house?
