Monthly Haiku Corner – May

Happy May! We’re halfway to Halloween. Hang in there just a few more months, my friends.

In honor of May being Cemetery Appreciation Month, this month’s theme will be cemetery life.

sunny days ahead
freshly dug forever homes
cemetery life

love, a deadly poison
til death do us part

Haiku of the Week

Our theme this month has been winter gothic.

A look ahead at February’s theme, love and death.

winter keeps lovers apart
hearts reunited

Poe Sundays

Happy Halloween Sunday! On this last day in October, we pay tribute to Master of Macabre, Edgar Allan Poe.

You can read the entire poem here: https://poestories.com/read/raven

Fun Fact: After being first turned down by a publisher friend, Poe sold the Raven poem to The American Review for $9. Subsequent publishings followed and even made Poe famous, but the man received little financial success.

Our theme this month is Halloween icons and what could be scarier than the scarecrow?
