Phantom Lighthouse

Write a story about a lighthouse that guides mystical ghost ships to the afterlife.

Lighthouses have always been symbols of guidance and hope in the hopeless sea. What if you were to make that symbolism a little more literal? Explore in your story the kind of souls who pass your lighthouse. What kind of purgatory-made-ships sail your seas? Who maintains this sacred duty and why? Think about the complexities, entailing such a responsibility and the repercussions it may have on the lighthouse keeper.
