Monthly Haiku Corner – August

Happy August! 30 days til the ‘Ber months and then, the real fun starts! I just returned from a great weekend at Midsummer Scream in Long Beach, where the Halloween spirit was alive and well! Stay tuned for my mini review and pics.

Here at Halloween Horror Haiku, we celebrate all things spooky every day, but this is the time of year where Halloween takes front and center. With that said, the theme this month is a Witches’ Halloween Spellbook. Do witches truly have a spell for a great Halloween? I believe they do.

Haiku of the Week

The theme this month is a werewolf summer.

My poem is inspired by Joe Slucher’s artwork entitled Werewolf Camp.

Monthly Haiku Corner – June

Three things remind me of June, cherries, delicious bit size fruit, great for milkshakes and pie; camping, which is not my cup of tea, but certainly makes for great stories; and werewolves. The werewolf, a terrifying beast that hides deep in the forests, waiting for its next victim. Is this creature part of nature’s evolution or an abomination from Hell? Our theme this month is a werewolf summer.

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.

Our theme this month is love and death.

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.

a death in autumn
winter keeps lovers apart
hearts reunited
