Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – “Ghostly” – October 19, 2020

First I want to “reblog” a poem I read today that I thought was phenomenal. I wanted to do a true reblog but I just don’t like how reblogs come out looking like my writing. Anyhow, check this out: Farrago Express The title is Links in the Chain.

So now for my contribution:

Living Hell

From out of the shadows there come the souls 

Of the children who have been lost in life 

They seek out peace and a comforting world 

Where, for them, there is no longer strife. 

What has taken them you may ask? 

Indeed, I wish I could tell. 

To lose a little one, any which way 

Is to a parent, a living hell.

  1. I know what you mean about reblogs. I try to put the word “reblog” in the title of the post, and write a blurb clarifying that it is indeed… well, not my original work. Another thing…I am having issues with the actual format of my own poems with the new editor. (I’m just an old Luddite, I guess.) Thanks for your entry, and also for the reblog.

      1. A few weeks back David had given me some pictures to use for my Simply 6 Minute writing challenge and he texted me to tell me someone had used the picture without my name. He knew this because it was really his picture! Come to find out it was noted on the post under my challenge so it wasn’t a big deal but people do notice these things.


      2. It is important to be absolutely clear when using someone else’s work. I always put a copyright on my poems and photos, but in actual experience that’s more a reminder than warning. I suppose law suits are possible, but highly unlikely to be worth the hassle.
