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.

    YOu really thought outside the box for the contest, Cyndi, with this relevant writing about Halloween and its true horror. My brother and I sure raced across those streets quickly to get as much candy as we could, but we were pretty careful! I enjoyed this. Luv, Andrea
