The scurry of mice,

The dreadful one-ounce monsters,

In the pre-dawn hours.


May it be that all your Halloween scare were no more serious than scurrying mice!  😀

Challenge was to use synonyms for fright and night in haiku.  Colleen offers many other poetry forms.  Go get acquainted if you do not know her.  



About oneta hayes

To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger.

My only Halloween scare was watching the news and seeing the appalling things children were getting up to around the world where this money-making celebration is allowed to be fostered. (Parents behaving badly as well) Not funny but destructive and nasty.
