Halloween Haiku

Revisit Halloween with a Haiku poem

Revisit Halloween with the haiku I submitted to Scrittura Magazine which was instead used on their twitter account, as the publication would come out a bit later than Halloween, and therefore was a bit out of season!  I am pleased that they liked it enough to give it a nice presentation…

Here’s the full text:

It’s that time of year
scary fashions in season,
and cobwebs are cool.

Veggies not just food!
Spiced pies and Jack-O-Lanterns
treats by candlelight

Dress up and go out,
or not, spooky movies work.
Your own atmosphere.

Knock on many doors.
Or pretend that you’re not in…
The sweets are all mine!

Witches and wizards,
skeletons crawling with bugs.
Insides are outsides!

No need to buy gifts.
Fun for all the family.
Better than Christmas!
