Haiku – 10/30/2020

Night fast approaching

Thick blanket of cold dead air

Slips in through the cracks


From his hiding place

Waiting for the light of dawn

Hoping he is safe


Floorboards creak above

Hard steps on the hallway floor

Killer is searching


The hours pass slowly

Time moves like honey dripping

Dawn starts to arrive


The house is silent

Man decides to make a move

Racing for freedom


Haiku – Discarded

A dirty road side

Used Christmas tree in the ditch

Season forgotten


Who out there hates to see the lifeless Christmas tree carcass dragged to the curb and discarded this time of year? It really does make me sad to see it.

On a happier note – I have lots of short stories running free this week. Here are today’s free selections.

You can get Demon Energy, A Zombie New Year’s Eve, and A Zombie Thanksgiving at the links below. Thanks again for reading. I hope you guys had a great and merry Christmas.



Poem – New Life

The morning cold breaks

Pierced by the warm sun rays

A world outside that’s so alive

Waiting on the summer haze

Magical fantastical spring

A harbinger of healing hope

Destroying winter’s frozen embrace

Natures way to cope

I wrote this a few mornings ago as I sat with my son while he ate his breakfast.  I was sipping on coffee, enjoying the beautiful morning just glad to have a warm day in front of me.  Now, today, I see it is ever so gently snowing.  It isn’t much snow, barely can see it, but it is there.  I think I called it snow drizzle because it is so faint.  34 degrees fahrenheit right now.  Two days ago it was almost seventy degrees fahrenheit.  Just crazy weather this year.  Anybody else done with winter and wish it would just go far away?  

By the way, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! 


Wearing of the green

On St Patrick’s Day it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories (the “wearing of the green”).

St Patrick is said to have used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish.[13][14] This story first appears in writing in 1726, though it may be older. In pagan Ireland, three was a significant number and the Irish had many triple deities.[15] The triple spiral symbol appears at many ancient megalithic sites in Ireland.
