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. © Harry J Horsman 2010

I assume Halloweeen sick day is indicative of the treats and excitement from children who over indulge! Smiles. What a much said in so few words with this wonderful Haku chain... Good luck for the contest, I wouldn't like to be the judge for this one with so many excellent entries! Keep your pen dancing, kindest thoughts, Anna-Marie.

Great use of imagery, Harry. Love the "pumpkin heads" and the startled cat. Indeed, there are innocents who arrive at our doorsteps and each Halloween I pray for their safety. Best wishes in the Halloween haiku contest! Love, Carolyn
