  1. It's a good one! I find it most difficult to put humour in rhyme and it must be even harder with a haiku.

  2. hmmm... the site doesn't accept my comments... lemme try again

    switched to 5-7-5, i see. this can work nicely but sometimes the haiku appear too wordy.

    well, i know what haloween is about, in the rough at least, but we have not really adopted it. i'm fine with that, though

  3. I have not even purchased halloween candy yet! Probably because I'd eat it all!

  5. thanks for the comment, polona. :)

    glad you tried again. :) true. :( i do feel that at times i'm merely chasing syllables. i like the idea of 5-7-5 because it gives me a structure to work with, but often i think of just setting it as a maximum , so i can come up with less wordy verse. :O

    true. we hardly have any trick or treating over here. although of course, the stores try to play up halloween. :)

  11. I already purchased some holloween sweets for kids that will be knocking on our doors these coming november. I kinda noticed that children that are trick or treating are getting a bit choosy on their sweets. Last year I was giving away malteesers in small packs and a little girl dressed in a fairy asked me if I have some M&M's.
