the siren song calls harmonizing with the dirge of those who listened
the guilty wood creaks floorboards shift and slide over unwanted secrets
old secrets still dwelled in the dark house, enshrouded by dust and cobwebs
wires twist and creak rubber gloves snap, needles click implements of pain ********* Today’s haiku is inspired by the movie Audition.
sunlight dims and fades night unfurls, petals stretching blood red to deep blue
cool water coaxes a smooth surface caresses lethal currents grip
when she felt cold pricks slowly trace her spine, she knew he found her again
silver fin lurking hidden in azure water slicing through the waves ***** I originally wrote this during a vacation on Myrtle Beach with family. I was out on the beach early, just after 8am, with my husband and twin sister. The lifeguard began signaling the few swimmers in the ocean back to the beach abruptly. We all began scanning the water, and spotted it. A gray shark fin popping up between the waves.
light every candle let a fire burn bright, just know darkness always comes
wind whips my face the snow muffles my footsteps darkness closing in
