Unnerving ~ Ghost Write


 Ghost Writer Week
for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is: Garry Gay

Ghost Writer #30
Prompt choice is
“thinking out of the box or misdirection”

My skeleton
going for a walk
in the cemetery


Unnerving laughter
Ricochets in the wind
Ghosts of lovers past

Bone ashes engaged
Hopscotch over pebbled path
Skeletons jingle

    I have a few of those ghosts of lovers past hanging around, and I find them rather bothersome!

    I just heard something today that amazed me — speaking of a skeleton going for a walk. Someone, maybe a disabled vet, has a new exo-skeleton that’s allowing him to walk again. It’s some kind of gizmo that goes over the leg and sends impulses from leg to brain and back again. That’s spooky, but not scary!
