Skeleton

Halloween Countdown, Day 21

“Your past is a skeleton walking one step behind you, and your future is a a skeleton walking one step in front of you. Maybe you don't wear a watch, but your skeletons do, and they always know what time it is.”

― Sherman Alexie, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven


la muerte

"The Skeleton" by G.K. Chesterton

Chattering finch and water-fly
Are not merrier than I;
Here among the flowers I lie
Laughing everlastingly.

No: I may not tell the best;
Surely, friends, I might have guessed
Death was but the good King's jest,
It was hid so carefully.
