I submitted the five poems here to Pure Haiku for Freya’s latest theme, Monster. The fourth and fifth haiku were featured at Pure Haiku on November 15th and December 8th.


pure evil takes aim
bullets rain from high above
festive music ends

abusive control
through unwanted advances
predatory sex

fanatic motivation
innocent lives lost

calm within the eye
return of destructive winds
killer hurricane

demon on the prowl
unguarded moment of sleep
troubling dream begins

Questions for a Silhouette

Questions for a Silhouette

Do the answers to life’s
imperceptible fade
lie in your eyes?

Tell me, if you know.
On the edge of this coming
darkness, will we be reunited?

I know the night is
unending, but their presence
would be a comfort.

And those left behind
in the light, will I see them
in their darkness?

Do you know?

This is my response to Thursday Photo Prompt – Crow #writephoto, by Sue Vincent at Daily Echo, with her photo.
