The 13 Days Of Halloween by Local Gems Press

My poem, “Halloween Teeth,” is on Day 5 of the 13 Days of Halloween by Local Gems Press. I share the day with Jilian Roath and Narges Rothermal.

HALLOWEEN TEETH HAIKU

—Patricia Carragon

 

the sound of drills

jack o’lantern smiles

under construction

jack o’lantern smiles

the curse of too much

Halloween candy

jagged teeth

jack o’ lanterns

in need of dentures

dental phobia

your insurance won’t cover

another crown

the economy

scarier than being drilled

by Freddy Krueger

 The Avocet

I have three haiku on the Fall 2014 issue of The Avocet.  I’m pleased that George Held, Erica Mapp, Mary Jo Balistreri, Charles Portolano, and more are also in this issue.

 

veins on leaves

my tree’s hands

touch mine

———————————

lamppost moon

sunshine leaves

autumn nocturne

—————————————–

leaves somersault

on sidewalks

autumn breeze
