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.”

Trifexta: Haiku

This is kind of strange to do a post for Trifecta’s weekend challenge: Trifexta without having a 33 word count, but I guess since a Haiku only has three lines, I guess that works too! The last time I did a Haiku was in my senior year of high school. I also remember having my aide explain to me three or four times how to do it, because I’m slow and could not figure it out whatsoever. I have seen a writing challenge just for Haiku, a fellow blogger Maggie Grace does them on her blog and Twitter a lot. I think they’re fun and sweet little stories.  I might be a little rusty, but I’m going to attempt this to the best of my ability. If you don’t know what they are,

HAIKU (noun)
: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively.

“The heat mixed
With a cool breeze it
Made a storm.”
