Toady at Carpe Diem – Garry Gay shares his impressions of autumn and Halloween.
Here is an example of thinking out side of the box or misdirection.
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.
graveyard keeps its secrets
night for pranksters
A complicated prompt by Garrry Gay today at Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem – Outside the box/ Misdirection
This month we have enjoyed the inspiration of Gary Gay and his beautiful haiku:
in the darkness–
by a snowflake
(c) Garry Gay
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.
dressed as a scarecrow
unable to face the world
without a mask
Today’s prompt at Carpe Diem is inspired by Gary Gay’s Halloween Night.
along the way
an old oak branch
becomes a walking stick
poised you wait
each journey etched in your skin
adventure at hand
In the spirit of Garry Gay’s haiku we are prompted by Kristjaan at Carpe Diem to echo his words.
sweat lodge –
my only vision
is of the cool water
~ Garry Gay of the American Haiku Society
refreshment our reward’s goal
melted winter flows

hands long to caress
where the river water flows
eyes follow time
