Once Upon a Halloween Haiku
Slowly, a boy creeps,
To a home. Dracula leaps!
To Sister he races.
“Come here boy!” said the monster.
Undaunted, the man
Pulled his bat cape of blackness
Climbed from his coffin.
“COME HERE BOY! He boomed.
The young boy zoomed to his sister,
Halloween was done.
His Majesty Reigns
Frost comes, petals fall,
Plants sleep til Spring comes to call,
Beauty warms the hearts.
Rebirth comes so sweet,
Daylight brings again its heat,
June days, summer starts.
A majestic hand,
Brings splendor to precious land,
His majesty reigns.
I have never been much for the witches, ghosts, goblins side of Halloween. But, I do enjoy a fun and creative costume as much as anyone. My mother always had a unique idea to turn my wheelchair into a UFO. I would have loved it, but mom never quite got around to doing it. But, here are some great ideas via Pintrist. Here is the link for many wonderful ideas: https://www.pinterest.com/explore/wheelchair-costumes/
Below are are just 2 photos of many costumes.
No hunter with guns,
I find nature, moons and suns

Grandpa, it is hard to believe that it has been thirty-one years,
Since cancer ripped you from my life, awash with tears.
Scrubbing on the dishes, not knowing what else to do.
Hearing Grandma’s anguished cry, I knew I had lost you.
I miss you Grandpa – your sense of humor and ready wit,
You were an unique combination of kindness, strength and grit.
I tried to fill your gigantic shoes; though I didn’t do very well,
But you would tell me on the negative not to dwell.
I can’t help but ponder how things would have been if cancer never took you,
Because it was you who held the family together; you were that special glue.
