Haiku – New Month

First of October

Multi-colored leaves falling

Almost Halloween

+

I don’t know about you, but this is probably my favorite month. I love Halloween, and I love how the macabre becomes so routine this time of year. My son’s books are a prime example of that. He’s two and the books have mummies, ghosts, vampires, and even werewolves in them. Granted, they aren’t the scariest versions of those creatures, but the fact that it is a-okay to have them in a kid’s book just for the sake of this holiday, well, just another reason why I love Halloween. What about you? Do you love this time of year or not?
