Challenges me to to write better haiku.
Like the jingling skeletons.
I have a few of those ghosts of lovers past hanging around, and I find them rather bothersome!

I love both haiku …. really ‘misdirection’ …
Ghosts of ghosts ~ that is unnerving, Becca! 😉
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!
That is simply amazing — and how wonderful for the recipient.
