I See Ghosts

My attempt at a Jisei (Japanese death poem) for DVerse MTB. I’m not sure if I did this correctly; I did not use a haikai form but still tried to give it the same style as one. I’m also linking this to MLMM’s Tale Weaver, which is about beginnings. This was inspired by an actual experience I had yesterday, not that I literally saw a ghost, but it felt like it, in a way. Ghosts haunt the streets
As we drive past the college campus
So many memories:
I can see myself
Walking down the sidewalks,
Inside those locked halls

There is pain at the ending
Heart-rending — above all
In the waiting,
For another beginning.
