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

"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…

In Honor of : Linda-Marie Sweetheart of P.S.

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!

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

Going Halloween Haiku Crazy

I may look crazy,
but this is just a disguise...
I shop at Target!

None Return

 Beware the old witch
as you go trick or treating
She can  hypnotize
House on the corner
where the old witch  lives, tempts some
to take one  last dare

 Then one by one they
ring the bell,  but none return
 to tell the tale

 Just screams of horror
are what's heard,  as cauldron boils
on Halloween night

My Halloween Horrors

Witches so surreal
Silhouettes  upon the moon
Flying on broomsticks

Jack-o-lanterns : smile
Through the flames of Hell, inside
Feigning , frightful sighs

Spooky ghost run by
On moonless Halloween nights
I, cower in Fear

howling through tombstones winds evoke resurrection spirits of those passed ‘neath the orange moon cackling heard above the gale witch flies through dark skies bats make their descent terrify trick or treaters candy corn scattered good, bad and ugly creatures of All Hallows Eve prance ‘cross leaf-strewn lawns

All hallows eve night
Just one scary night in fall
Bats bit my isthmus

I changed my figure
Wearing black cape with shadows
Two fangs from my jowls

This tale of that night
Secures Halloweens darkness
My solemn visit

Poetry soups stay
Only at night I sojourn
Seeking blood delight

This Halloween time
I seek more than blood request
Poetry inquest

To live once again
In daylight and be set free
Normal mortal me

Halloween Haiku

                                          an eerie old house
                                   abode for disgruntled ghosts - 
                                           waits expectantly   

                                            halloween party
                                           by invitation only - 
                                        come at your own risk

                                       costumed guests arrive
                                      unaware of ghostly hosts -
                                            ignorance is bliss

                                          at the midnight hour
                                  the haunted house comes alive -
                                          lurking ghosts appear

                                        human screams abound
                                  ghoulish spirits shriek with glee -
                                            party in full swing

                                        silence greets the dawn - 
                                     shrieking spirits now at rest
                                      but where are the guests?

Halloween Haiku

                                          moonlight follows me..
                                 stepping through crackling leaves..
                                           a shadow peaks out..

Costs less to dress as mummy,

Ghosts and Goblins

 Ghost and goblins roam the streets
              happy waiting
 for a child to come by then suprise

Details | Haiku | |


"A ghoul's parade"
Time remains still for The silent, eternal march Of children disguised
"Fun for All"
Black and orange smiles A knight of ghastly terror for playful sprites
"Darkest night of the year"
A powerful howl pierces the children's laughter The cold hallows wind
"Haunting holiday"
A pre-November unforgiving melody "Happy Halloween"

In the hallowed woods,

Fun-diseased world

Avenged adult world
Fishy funny kids’ play world
The saturnine feast.

Sorcerous* Nox night
Lone places yawn hell pervades
global fun-disease

Ghosts grovel and then wolves weep
Goblins grin skeletons sway
Thus the streets savaged

Halloween Night

It's Halloween night.
Wispy clouds across the moon
Make an eerie sight.

The chill in the air,
The sound of a howling wolf,
Send shivers down spine.

All sounds amplified
Walking alone in the dark.
Nerves a tingle.......Boo!

All Hallowed Eve

Scary faces peer
Down the eerie pumpkin paths
Doorbells ring from fright

All the boys and ghouls
Spooky creatures of the night
Undead creep around

Keep those goblins safe
As they fill those bags with treats
Welcome Halloween!

Great Ghostly Pumpkin

Poesy- Raul Moreno's Picture

Witchly warts, indeed
a rare find, carve out the seeds-
