Haiku – 2/21/2022

Above the tall pines

An endless sky of bright blue

Infinite beauty


Haiku – 6/13/2021

A door clicks open

Unpleasant smell of decay

Takes over the room


Soft shuffling of feet

It enters the tiny house

Looking for a feast


Terror fills his soul

Running for a quick exit

The back door is blocked


There is no way out

Man grabs a long kitchen knife

Time to go to war


I know I haven’t been posting much as of late, honestly having been doing a lot of creative stuff lately. Kids are out of school, schedule is tighter, free time is tighter as well, and most days I’d rather relax than post in a blog. Just wanted to put that out there in case you are wondering where I have dissappeared to. And next week I finally getting to have a vacation of sorts, going to visit family. This will be the first trip me and my family have taken since Christmas of 2019. Crazy. That’s it and below you will find a picture I was going to write a Haiku about for this post. Decided to write a horror tale instead, but I thought I would leave the picture. I like the way it turned out.

Haiku – 1/28/2021

Trees covered in snow

A brief dusting overnight

Children filled with glee


Finally got some snow last night. Not much compared to what others get throughout the northern areas of the U.S., but for my kids it was more than enough to build a snow man and to to get me outside before I started my morning coffee, which I took with me, no way I am leaving it behind. But there is something kind of poetic about standing in the cold, drinking coffee, looking at a snowy landscape. I don’t think we got more than an inch, and it is a wet inch of snow, but in N.C. we will take it. Doesn’t snow much around here and I am fine with that. It makes days like today even more special. Quick question: are you a snow lover or not? Cheers.
