The 13 Days Of Halloween by Local Gems Press


My poem, "Halloween Teeth," is on Day 5 of the 13 Days of Halloween by Local Gems Press. I share the day with Jilian Roath and Narges Rothermal.

HALLOWEEN TEETH HAIKU
   ---Patricia Carragon
         
the sound of drills
jack o'lantern smiles
under construction

jack o'lantern smiles
       the curse of too much
       Halloween candy

jagged teeth
      jack o' lanterns
      in need of dentures

dental phobia
     your insurance won't cover
     another crown

the economy
     scarier than being drilled
     by Freddy Krueger

 The Avocet

I have three haiku on the Fall 2014 issue of The Avocet.  I’m pleased that George Held, Erica Mapp, Mary Jo Balistreri, Charles Portolano, and more are also in this issue.




veins on leaves
my tree’s hands
touch mine
---------------------------------

lamppost moon
            sunshine leaves
                        autumn nocturne
-----------------------------------------

leaves somersault
on sidewalks
            autumn breeze
