Silly Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to the weekly poetry slam! Jenn's theme is
I've been thinking about Halloween ever since the grocery store started selling witchy napkins and trick 'r treat tchotchkes back in July. Now that it's finally here, I can get all eloquent and poetic:

My urchins have been
trick-or-treating since way back --
this is our last year.

The tall boy always
wanted to be Neil Armstrong --
a great role model!

My iPod urchin
and her headphones friend were a
smash hit in the 'hood.

Cleopatra girl
loves ancient Egypt -- but dang!
The wig was itchy!

  1. I love the i-pod and headphones. So creative!

  2. Excellent Halloween haiku and costumes!

  3. Excellent haiku, as always! Love the costumes - very imaginative!

    Sad to see these days pass, isn't it? My oldest is too old now, and Wee One keeps getting dragged out of town every year on Hallowe'en - last year we stopped for an hour in some little town in South Carolina on our way to Florida (from Toronto!)so she could do some trick or treating! This year she said it'd be ok if we skipped it. I think next year we'll leave on November 1st though!

  4. Fabulous costumes - especially the ipod one, what a great idea. I love the pumpkin in the first photo - did you do that? That's great fun, I will have to keep that in mind for next year. I'm still trying to hunt down some Halloween photos from years ago.

  5. Very cute costumes and kids!
