Halloween Haiku

the porch light is off there is no jack-o-lantern drapes shield heart from night ~ halloween kills her horrid anniversary sweet son hit by car ~ lawn holds well lit sign: DRIVE SLOW! ANGELS ARE WALKING! MINE’S IN HEAVEN NOW! ~ parents pause, wipe eyes then hold tiny hands tighter dark thoughts terrify ~ no ghost or monster no scream, costume or scarecrow could frighten them more
For P.D.'s "Halloween Haiku" Contest NOTES This from the article Real Horror of Halloween By Liz Szabo, USA TODAY, “Kids face real dangers on Halloween night, but not from ghosts. Children are more than twice as likely to be killed by a car while walking on Halloween than any other night of the year, according to Safe Kids USA.” Please, let’s drive safely, folks. Children are precious.

Happy Anniversary, Baby!

'bout to celebrate 
4 years almost total bliss
few bumps here and there

never have to fear
lonely times that once were near
my gift from the gods

lucky me to be
here besides you night and day
covering my flaws

covering my back
whenever you think you can
my perfect iron man

doing all you can
to make my life more than bore
you've made it easy

Sudden windy gust
Plays havoc with hair;
Air pregnant with rain

Torrential rain falling
Sky oozing water;
Viscous as oil

Long long queue
Taxi stand centipede;
No cab in sight

Common complaint
Common folks echo;
Too little time

By reservoir park
Bench wet with dew;
Curious eyes detect

Morning jog
Wilderness feeling;
Reservoir park circuit

My darling sleeps
Sweet dreams attend;
Angelic smiles decorate

Here I sit vivid:
Sculpt turn of phrase;
Poem emerging

Some long
For the good old days;
Fresh change intrudes

Anniversary thoughts
Think upon yesterdays;
Nothing much said

Needs and wants
Adversarial anti-climax
No solution yet

One more minute please
Morning wake-up call;
Sleepy feel malingers
