Halloween Haiku Wednesday


This theme puts me in mind of a homemade sign I once saw that said: 'Cold Callers not welcome'  under which I wanted to scrawl: 'But warm ones appreciated'. 
This week's theme: Freestyle ~ Whatever you like

Halloween Haikus by Madeleine Maddocks




 

My haikus (which are not meant to rhyme) use the traditional 5, 7, 5 syllable structure. There are many scattered throughout my blog posts.

I knitted this cute little Vampire Bat
from an Alan Dart pattern

  9. Love all of these my friend. I remember this one old lady in our neighborhood. She made all the kids do a trick before she gave us any candy and it was always the best candy in the neighborhood :) Love the photos as well. Happy Halloween :)
