For The Love Of Haiku

When Dolly posted this picture for our March haiku challenge at http://allaboutlemon.com/for-the-love-of-haiku/, I wondered if she was doing some extremely early advertising for a Halloween props’ shop. But then I thought, of course, this would only be following in the footsteps of retailers who sell Christmas decorations in September, or Easter eggs at New Year!

Beware, the restless dead!
Drawing life from Spring and Summer,
Halloween bites hard.

For The Love Of Haiku

Don’t poison that mouse!
A rodent fattened on cheese–
Kitty’s dream dessert.

My apologies for skipping last week’s haiku challenge and producing a rather belated one this week, but have had countless musical commitments over Christmas. Anyone else who wants to jump on board at the last moment and join in with the fun, please check out http://allaboutlemon.com/category/haiku-lovers/

Special Christmas greetings and New Year good wishes to adollyciousirony and all her art game players who’ve provided us haiku lovers with so many eccentric, if not surreal images as our writing prompts throughout 2012.
