Halloween Haikus

In the shifting air
the sweet scent of candy corn
candle wax burning

All doors are open
an ancient mystery lives
I bask in its glow

'mongst Shadows

Autumn's, veil, misty,
Intrigue prowls-horror’s echo,
Halloween's chill creeps.

Masked-truth’s cleaver guise,
Secrets whisper ‘mongst shadows,
Fear stalks-night’s cruel jest.

Halloween Haiku

The devil trembles
Feeling the autumn wind's rage
Children eat candy

Red mask covers eyes
Blind to first fall carnival
Her pockets picked clean

Nevermore  lovers
Halloween murders-blood found
Quote the black raven

Halloween Haiku

Carving to free souls
night before all Hallows Day
tradition they prey

Scarce candy in bowls
night of fright or time to say
a treat or foul play

Halloween Haiku (For Linda-Marie the Sweetheart of P.S.'s Contest)

Halloween Haiku

Suburban parade:
A night to transform yourself,
and beg without shame.

Subsequent morning:
Pillowcases wear make up-
Wrappers and trinkets.

The Thanksgiving porch:
Mouth with one neglected tooth-
The jack-o-lantern.

The Perspective of a Halloween Candle....

Bright, orange, white, flicker.....
Two black eyes, one dark mouth viewed,
I'm the flame inside

They trim the flesh out
Stubby children's hands; entrails
I'm the flame inside

My face-like windows
My removable roof-top
I'm the flame inside

Halloween Haiku

Pumpkin seeds as teeth
Candle light escapes eye holes
Goose bumps in the dark...

Full moon brings the afterlife
To our door again

Categories: night,


The night of the witch
goodness blends within evil
doorstep innocence.

Pumpkin head alight
wandering the eerie streets
alley cat startled.

Bats doing their thing
every night of the year
Halloween sick day.
