Special Feature: Halloween-Themed Haiku and Senryu

My Dear Readers:

It’s Halloween, everyone is entitled to one good scare (or one good laugh in the face of dark times):

twilight deepening
an army of the dead
... and a Trump lookalike

Chen-ou Liu

no way out
Death’s at the door
demanding candy 

LeRoy Gorman

the warmth
of the skeleton's hand

Michelle Schaefer

Halloween party --
after a few drinks
the masks come off

David Grayson

All Souls’ Eve  --
tipping the spirit level
this way & that

Sandra Simpson

To conclude today's Special Feature post, I would like to share with you the following pandemic Halloween haiku sequence:

Two Hundred and Eightieth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary

Halloween: Behind The Mask

dripping blood
from my front door banner:
no trick or treat

hazy streetlight
teen vampires kissing
with masks under their chins

more hotspots 
added to the Covid heat map
déjà vu nightmare 

Stay safe and well

And Happy Halloween
