Haiku – 7/5/2020

In the eastern sky

Splashes of red appearing

Dawn’s light approaching


I wrote this paragraph for a 100 words or less flash fiction contest.

I thought I would share it.

Night closing. Dawn approaching. Vampire walks into the tomb after a long night of feasting. He sees his love, his eternal companion, nestled in her coffin. He looks around at the empty blood bags lying on the floor, a Vampire afraid of killing humans, she is a strange one. He hangs the full blood bags in the refrigerator, closes the door, and once again looks at the mess. He shakes his head, ageless shoulder length blonde hair rustling, and smiles – “Holy cow, that’s a lot of empties,” he replies and crawls into his coffin, settles in. The day arrives.

      1. Sorry to be a nuisance but would you be kind enough to let me know if it happens again. I very often see and like your posts and comment too so you should see my comments most days. I have a feeling that it could be when my wifi weakens. I’ve noticed if I go on to data alone the comments and likes I make go through faster. Maybe with weak wifi the comments take so long they end up in spam. Thank you again for letting me know 💛😊

      2. Not a nuisance at all. Thanks for being so encouraging. I will let you know if it does it again. Just kind of stumbled on it this morning. Never check my Spam. Guess I should. Hope you have a great day.
