daylight gets weaker
as night gets stronger, longer

My fav word "stronger" - it draws me toward Halloween, a nice underlying tension. Thank you.

This is the first of yours that I've read and to challenge yourself and write in English is admirable. I like this and I believe I see vividly the notion you are conveying.
Though I'm no expert in haiku by a long-shot, I've learned that haiku need not be in 5-7-5 or have 17 syllables, and the shorter the better, so, my only suggestion here is that you might have been able to convey this with fewer words.
Well done and thank you for sharing!

I too love the use of "stronger" to describe the night.
