Write a Halloween Haiku & Get the Kids Writing Too!

BLACK CAT, A Halloween Haiku (inspired by Midnight, our fabulous furry feline). ~Bette A. Stevens, Maine author

Meet Midnight—The fabulous furry feline who inspired me to write BLACK CAT, a 🎃Halloween haiku🎃 (Haiku: a Japanese-inspired three-line: 5-7-5 syllable poetry form).

Midnight’s grooming table is decked out for each season or holiday and she loves it. I designed this year’s poster using a photo I took of Midnight resting on her grooming table here at the farmstead in central Maine. She’s a kitty who loves to hunt for spiders (one of her favorite treats). After taking the photo and writing the haiku, I added text plus spider and web graphics, then added a frame to make a poster. Kids of all ages enjoy writing and  illustrating their own poetry. It makes a great family activity too. 

What’s inspiring you…

    Well, I’m just an old man, and you won’t get any Halloween poem from me!
    But – may I voice an opinion to all you parents out there with kids:
    Arrange a dress-up party at home! And buy the kids some ‘goodies’!
    After all, they are your kids! A much better and safer solution compared to that of sending them out intor the streets, raising hell throughout the neighborhood with no control of what they will be eating or what else might happen to them when they most likely hit on the wrong door bell!

      Good advice, Svein, and I feel many people have your same views.

        I’ve experienced kids raging out of control when they don’t receive enough goodies, shooting berries at windows or throwing eggs at doorways. In a situation like that it doesn’t take much to ignite tempers . . .
