Today’s author shares her beautiful, dark Haiku poetry





Horror Haiku and Other Poems

Words linger…

In the darkness of shadows, in the distant screams.

They whisper past the drip, drip of blood.

The strange beauty of words hide, waiting for you.

Embrace the horror.


Venture past safe reality, into the world of terror told in verse. Horror Haiku and Other Poems brings forth surreal dread and spins it in artistic countenance. From small chilling bites of poetry, to murky morsels of fright, come find where the words haunt you, where they live and die.


Review snippet:

True to the spirit of haiku, her poems each have a reference to nature—the moonlit night, the cold depth of ocean, the dampness of earth and stone. Others offer a glimpse of a deeper, perhaps hidden (perhaps not-so-hidden) nature—the nature of man, of beast, of evil. – Ash Krafton – Amazon Review


Some Haiku Excerpts:


Creep insanity

along the cobblestones dark

Sharp blade, carve a smile


She waits for her love,

pale, trembling, silent. She walks—

among the undead


Wandering sailor,

Can you hear their charming song?

Too close—mermaids feast
