Oct. 30: Haunted Refrigerator Night

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 7:20 pm

fridgeNotesN Ruth and Thomas Roy at Wellcat.com are known for creating holidays and related rituals. The Roys have deemed today, October 30th, to be Haunted Refrigerator Night — a time to gather your courage and see “what evil lurks in the refrigerators of men . . . and women.” We think it’s great practice for facing the coming horrors of Halloween (and even dias des los muertos).

The f/k/a Gang may have more than enough mold in their fridge, but we don’t have enough haiku to celebrate Haunted Refrigerator Night. So, come on Honored Guest Poets, click on the Comment link and try your hand. Good sport Ed Markowski has already offered a pair. Now it’s your turn. Until we get better ones, you’re stuck with dagosan’s quickies.

still there

orange mold creeps across
a long dead rainbow trout

autumn wind
rattles the window -
the fridge hums louder

95 degrees
the refrigerator
sweats, too

aging veggies
in the fridge –
I break a few eggs

October 30
the fridge bulb
flickers and dies

the Sub Zero kicks on —
magnets falling
to the kitchen floor

 

hissing in the kitchen —
cat and freon
escape

  2. As usual, Edward, you are too kind. Keep it up.

    Thanks for reprising your (appropriately) paranoid Halloween-ku.
