Thought Not Held – Author Anne D. Salyer


Determined ghost

Running rampant through my house,

Whispering in my ear.

I try not to listen

To your insidious comments,

But you catch me

Before I can escape to dreams.

Morning comes

In the mote-filled sunlight.

You arise in full force

Standing behind me,

Waiting for my head to turn.

Waiting for me to acknowledge you

And hold you in my arms.

Excerpt from the book “A Treasures of Seashells”


Anne D. Salyer

I was born and grew up in a small town in Oklahoma. Eventually I escaped to Kansas where I met the love of my life with whom I’ve been with for 25 years. We currently reside in Overland Park with three cats, my neglected poetic children, and this raccoon puppet. All in all, it is a good life!
