Haiku my Heart - Nations Together

A Japanese Haiku
A Mexican celebration
and a mixture of everything
this time of year.


is it halloween
dia de los muertos
maybe all souls day

Whatever it is called, it's a celebration in honor of loved ones past.

In France it's All Souls Day
In Brazil, Dia de Finados  (deceased)
Bolivia, Day of the skulls
Haiti, there are voodoo drums and music all night in cemeteries
In America, it's little spooks at your door begging for candy

dod celebration

I honor the life of my child, Aleta
missed and loved every day

"Autumnal rites are among the oldest celebrated on earth.  It appears that in every country, the Day of the Dead occurs at years end, after the last harvests when the barren earth is thought to give passage to the souls lying beneath it".  ----Marguerite Yourcenar
