A Halloween Haiku


We fear nothing so

much as fear to which we have

not yet put a name...

I have dreams in which I frantically check every locked door and window, only to discover that one has been silently breached. I don't know what I fear will get in if I'm not vigilant, but the worry continues to plague me!

The photo above was taken at the prison in Lincoln Castle, England

Good to see you back, Lynette. I've missed you.
Great choice for Halloween, a prison window. (Teeny tiny typo in Lincoln, the editor in me cries.)

Nice work! I'm such a sucker for haiku.


I even have my own blog of (mostly) non-traditional haiku, if you're interested: Haiku Koo-Koo

Halloween is a great time to consider that deep down we are all a little defenseless against unseen forces. Your timely haiku and dream expresses the vulnerability well. Nice to have you back, Lynette!

Funny how dreams affect us isn't it? My dreams are always of being chased..oddly enough, by an unknown. Creepy picture and great post :)

Lynete,
I enjoyed your words and can appreciate your fear 'worry'!

I have just been to Belfast for a long weekend, so I am late visiting to comment.
Lots of photos of an autumnal Botanic Gardens.
All memories...
Eileen :)
