    1. It would have been fantastic to get your entry to the contest. But then: I named this the 1st Halloween-poem contest. I figure, if it is a success and people have fun, there might easy be a 2nd one? I hope by then you should be settled in. 😉
      I wish you Good Luck with your cross-country move. Take care.

    1. Okay… let’s think about this: one haiku = 17 syllables.
      My research showed that the average English word has 2.43 syllables.
      99 demanded words x 2.43 syllables = 240.57 syllables
      240.57 syllables : 17 syllables = 14.15 Haiku to write and deliver – and you’ll be a participant. 😀

      Please, join the fun. I would look so forward to read your poem. 🙂
