eerie nights (troibun) Daily Moments October 30/17

Clouds no longer form shapes in the sky. All one sees now is grey and greyer. Wind gusts and rain make the trees flap their arms shedding their leaves that are still green! The day is coming and we feel it in our bones due to the dampness, the cold and daunting night of Hallow’s Eve.

behind heavy billows
filled with tears

stars hiding
waiting to shine
on All Hallow’s Day

behind heavy billows
stories retold
of revered saints

filled with tears
dressed as an angel
dropped all her candies


Written for Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge: Spooky Night

A troiku is a new form of haiku created by Chevrefeuille at CarpeDiemHaikuKai. I have coined the haibun in this case a Troibun.

It’s that time of year again. How it comes around so fast some people think.  There is barely enough time to get ready for the holidays.  And yet, the empty bellies and aching souls live in a world where time crawls like a cunning snake, preying sufferers will just give up.

man in a red suit
folks don’t notice a beggar
holding out his cup

rings a bell for offerings
filling bellies at Christmas
‘tis the season

holds a big glass bowl
in hopes for silent gifts
not the clink of coins


The Prompt at Ronovan Writes Haiku is Bells and Ring although, my  reflections came up with Bell and Rings.
