Halloween

This is for Frank J. Tassone’s haikai challenge. This week, the prompt is, fittingly, Halloween. I usually enjoy this holiday and especially All Saint’s Day the day after. this has made me realize that I still need a costume!


Funny-faced pumpkins
Laugh in death’s disfigured face

Waiting for nighttime

To reveal a companion

On this search for love

For Frank J. Tassone’s haikai prompt this week. Click here for more info. It turns out that this month’s full moon was last night, and I didn’t realize it, though I did look at the moon. I wrote the above haiku yesterday. Then, this morning, upon reading that the “Hunter’s Moon” was actually yesterday, I wrote this:

I saw you last night

My desired companion,

Sans recognition
