Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

    What a fun Senryu (Haiku), Viva. I always loved Halloween. I think it was the opportunity to pretend you were something or someone else for one day. Great creativity as born from those days. Your Haiku sums it up perfectly for me. ❤

  5. Halloween is such a fun topic. Your haiku is spot on!

  6. voices… trick or treat
    waited… opened door… voices
    AILEEN… there’s no one

    My pranking electrotonically minded grandson, full of surprises! But hey isn’t that what Halloween is all about.

    Noted what Colleen had to say, to add my pennyworth of knowledge The Japanese consider all their festivals as kigo, as they represent, or indicate a season. Halloween an autumn/fall celebration, hence it is a kigo, plus pumpkin itself is kigo. Oops me penny has run out Pumpkin eyes leering muh haha! love it!
