A Weathered Skeleton

A weathered skeleton
in windy fields of memory,
piercing like a knife

gayest poem ever
(A Weathered Skeleton by Matsuo Basho.) **What a scene, so piercing.
every word perfectly chosen for effect
beautiful imagery, and as sharp as that knife..
Lovely picture of a familiar experience had by all. Another gem by the father of haiku.
