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.

Monthly Haiku Corner – August

This is the time of year we call Summerween. Ghosts are visiting empty pools. Witches are gathering their brewing tools, and insects…well, they’re doing whatever icky thing insects do. Yes, it’s sticky outside and if heat doesn’t kill us, or Covid, the nighttime creeps on the prowl surely will. Our theme this month is Summerween.

ancient curses never sleep

Monthly Haiku Corner – July

New month means new theme, campfire creatures.

ghastly campfire tales
one spooky summer

Happy Caturday – July

This month’s theme is campfire creatures.

How much do you really know about the creatures lurking from deep in the forests?

Remember to always practice good camp and fire safety and the ghosts of careless campers won’t lead the monsters straight to you.
