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 Babes"

“Halloween Babes”

Innocent Angels
Prowl darken streets, seek sweet treats
Human evil seeks…

This pure Love of heart
Unaware what evil lurks
In human dark souls…

Just another child
Bites the dust of human lust’s
Illusions of ghouls…

For Contest: Halloween Haiku
In Honor of : Linda-Marie Sweetheart of P.S.

Halloween Haiku

Halloween Haiku (the forest recalls) spirits awaken orange glow before nightfall. . . . All Hallow Eve dawns the forest recalls screams of caged men burned in fires. . . . a druid’s dark sky the lord of the dead lingers in woods’ memory. . . . a lone owl’s strange hoot reaching for moon black barbed spindly arms outstretched. . . . The worshiping trees crescent moon upturned a faceless pale entity. . . . *Sanheim grins down *Sanheim was the Celtic Lord of the Dead, for whom human sacrifices were made to make amends for sins of the evil dead. All Hallow Eve took place the night before their new year, when Sun was worshiped on the next day. For PD's HALLOWEEN HAIKU Poetry Contest

On All Hallow's Eve

unseen in forests
creepy crawly things slither. . . 
inhabiting night

miles from the black woods
bolder creatures (upright) flit. . . 
whooping in the streets

woods seem eerier
towns' garish beasts seem wilder. . . 
and strangeness prevails

Spirited Procession

fog's fingertips creep
moon silently cackles, grins...
soft glow on blackness

twisted trees moan, creak
pumpkins' wrinkles choke, dig deep...
lit up distortions

shuffling, shifting steps
spirited procession, screams...
smiles flash, trick or treat!

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...

Haloween Roles

Daunting Decision
Cigar girl…wench…Obama...
What role shall I play?

Halloween's Hall Pass
Excuse to dress like a tramp
To win a bar tab

All Souls Night

All Souls Night

O the ghastly wind
Rattles the bones of the dead
Look not in mirrors

Lock your doors and hide
Spirits dance and laugh in glee
Fear their only food

Tempt your fate with treats
Trade your soul for just one bite
Bitter end tonight
