Haiku – Just Before The Dawn

Short story re-writes

I wake in my warm soft bed

To answer the call


I’ve been working on a collection of short stories that I hope to release before Halloween. I do have a pretty cool cover for it already that you may or may not have seen already.

Nightlight Tales - High Resolution

James is the designer of the cover and his work can be found here: http://www.goonwrite.com/index.htm

Before I leave you, here are a couple of things related to the title of this Haiku.

This is a solid slasher movie from the Eighties – one I still own on DVD. Cheap, creepy, and a great score.

A great song from the mighty Judas Priest – this is a ballad by them.


Haiku – The “Painted Sky” Run

Pink sky, blueish clouds

Daylight fades into the night

Picturesque sunset


It was hard to get out the door tonight.  I almost didn’t run, but I made myself get out and go.  I am glad I did.  I managed to get some good miles in.

This song came on my MP3 tonight and I thought it would be a good one to dedicate to all runners out there battling the summer heat.

Stab! Bawl! Punch! Crawl!

Hooks to my brain are well in

Stab! Bawl! Punch! Crawl!

I know what I am, I’m Berlin

via Dissident Aggressor Lyrics – Judas Priest
