Almost All Hallow’s Eve . . .

new moon . . .

shining brighter

According to Earth and Sky, the brightest star in the night skies right now, found in the constellation Perseus, is known variously as Algol, the Demon Star, or the Ghoul Star.  What could be more appropriate for Halloween?  Well, maybe Aubrie Cox’s  troll and tea party post–planned for Oct. 31.  (There’s still a little time left to send your tea/monster ku her way . . . . )  Or an after-Halloween Day of the Dead ku-fest scheduled here for Nov. 2.  

To participate in the latter, send me your ku/tanka by the witching hour on Halloween and I’ll include at least one (or more) in my annual post commemorating loved ones who’ve gone before us.  Just write your tributes in comments to this post, and I’ll sort through them for Wednesday’s unveiling.  Felicidades.  Oh, and Happy Halloween!

About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret
