POETRY: Ghost Poem

A ghost on a ship scares the birds,

A ghost on a ship watches for bergs.

A ghost on a ship has no words,

A ghost on a ship still loves their work. 

A ghost on an island watches the crowds,

A ghost on an island wanders around.

An invisible rope tethered to the ground,

Left alone in their hometown.

Patterson writes, “I’ve always had a knack for writing and the short and quick format of poems have allowed me to write without worrying too much about finishing a project. I’ve written short stories, but I feel more confident in my poems as they material was written with more belief and emotion behind it than the stories.”
