My skeleton
going for a walk
in the cemetery

This poem has both a subject of death, yet a dash of humor. A misdirection if you will as my skeleton is still living yet visiting the graveyard. Enjoy the environment of the rich colors and creepy Halloween decorations of October and create your on haunting misdirection’s.

graves

following shadows

graveyard keeps its secrets

night for pranksters

Touched by a promise #haiku #poetry #photography

This month we have enjoyed the inspiration of Gary Gay and his beautiful haiku:

touched
in the darkness–
by a snowflake

(c) Garry Gay

fall leaves heart

touched by a promise

hope flutters to earth

shaped like a heart

Thanks to Kristjaan at Carpe Diem who delights us with challenging prompts

The goal of the Tan Renga Challenge is to write a second stanza to the first stanza (the haiku by Garry Gay) to complete the Tan Renga. You may use the classical syllables count, ( first stanza is 5-7-5 second stanza is 7-7) but it isn’t necessary.
