Spooky Inspired Haikus

So I’ve had a long, hard day and I am not in the mood to work on my Free Write Friday for this week. So I’ll do it tomorrow, if I don’t sleep all day. I am deciding to do something a little different, well I did it last night, but you get the idea. Kellie Elmore, who hosts Free Write Friday prompts, she asked whoever wanted to join to do spooky inspired Haikus. Does anybody remember the last one I did for Trifecta? I do and somehow I decided to go for it again. I came up with four different ones. One of my friends said that one of them sounded kind of romantic. After I read it again when I got up this morning, I kind of agreed with her. That wasn’t my intention, but it works. Instead of doing my big post right now. I thought I’d post those Spookus. The last one is the “romantic” one and I swear I didn’t plan on making them work so well together. I know they’re probably not right. I was mostly concerned with the syllables than the actual word that went with it. Sorry! I hope you like them otherwise!

“The mysterious fog
Caused Sophie to become scared
She became paranoid.”

“The nightmares grew more
They became so realistic
She dreaded sleeping.”

“The room turned colder
She felt somebody touch her
And the lights went out.”

“His fangs dug deep down
Blood flooded onto her shirt
He grunted in pleasure.”

  1. I saw Kellie was encouraging spooky Haikus on Twitter this morning, I thought it would be a good idea to try my hand, as I have a 5 minute slot at Drummonds 42 in a fortnight and I am trying to learn some material off by heart. I hadn’t got as far as checking FWF yet tonight – but that would be two birds, one stone!

    Apart from your final verse, the descriptions reminded me of the night terrors I suffered when I was ill last year. Very vivid.


    1. You have a Twitter? What is it? Sounds like you have a lot on your plate, don’t you? 🙂

      And yikes! Apparently I’m giving everybody different vibes with these little things. I was never good at Haikus in high school so I never think my original material are very good. Lol
