Folktober Challenge, Day 28

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

Inspired by F2. 28 Kunekune


Have you seen it? Slender, twisting,
in the rice field, like a ghostly figured light
when the plants are green, the sky bright blue.
It’s mesmerizing as it dances,
when no wind is there. You yawn over lunch,
think you dreamt what you’d seen.

But there’s your friend,
standing where it was. His eyes now blank,
his mind now gone, and you know
what you saw–it wasn’t a dream.

For Paul Brookes’ Folktober Challenge. You can see the images and read the other responses here.
