Today the dVerse Poets Pub has tasked us with pouring a powerful spirit poem cocktail. Or go ghostie with it. Get into the spirit of the holidays. Is your muse a restless spirit? Write about it! Use it as an adjective: spiritual, or spirited (lively, full of energy). Spirit can even be a verb: to convey rapidly and secretly.

A free spirit

(not by choice but


treading wet cement.

Stuck alone and

ripped apart.

Neither seeking nor

being sought,

but waiting in limbo.

What else can you do

when your puzzle’s

missing piece

is anxiously awaiting

your arrival

on the Other Side?
