Halloween Haiku

Dark Halloween night
Ghosts and goblins roam the earth
Demanding candy

Those grinning terrors
Knock on unsuspecting doors…

But they don’t mean that.
Try offering them a TRICK
And see what happens!

Haiku – Shift

For this week’s Haiku Horizons challenge, the prompt was “shift”… I thought I’d approach it in a slightly different way…

Things that you should shift:
Mindset, perspective, gear;
Your ass and do it!

This seems a fairly appropriate way to announce that I’ve signed up for NaNoWriMo – the National Novel Writing Month challenge. It runs throughout November, with the aim being to write 50,000 words for your novel over that time. Yep. Fifty thousand. That’s only about 45,000 more than I’ve ever written on any one thing, ever, in my whole life. No problem, right?

I know Meg’s in as well… anyone else dumb brave enough to join us??

Haiku – Compass

You may have noticed that I haven’t been blogging much lately – life and work are getting in the way. Some of my favourite blogs have shut down recently, and I have contemplated doing the same… I’ve decided not to. I don’t know how much writing I’ll get to do, and how much I can share with you (am trying to work on some longer short stories and fiction), but I’ll still be around whenever I can 🙂

This is something I wrote this morning. A little haiku for the lovers…


I was lost in love
Heart’s compass re-calibrates
Now points me to you
