Halloween Haiku



in the ivy
in the dark


gnarled stubs
scratch at the glass
chill wind


unearthing the skull
in the basement
setting it in the window

    Thanks, everyone! The last one is my favorite too. You can tell I’m the one who gets sent down there to find the decorations.

    Yes! Love that last haiku and the photograph. The scariest thing I find in my basement is cobwebs and my high school year book.
