Ghost Dog (and Other Haikus)

Trick-or-Treat

Open palmed children

come crawling up to the door

ravenous for sweets.

 

Painkillers

A pair of blue pills

cocked back in my clammy palms;

shaking on my lips.

 

Screaming into a Jar

The glass on his lips

swallows the words as he yells

‘til they sound like hums.

 

Punch

Hot blood in my hands

feels like a molten sword

begging to be swung.

 

Ghost Dog

His round, button nose

is covered by the white sheet

while his feet peek out.

MUSIC SERIES – Zombies

Spooky season is almost over, but I wanted to write a poem inspired by This is Halloween…so here it is. 😀

 

Zombies

 

You will see them on the sidewalk

in search of sweet morsels;

their legs scraping along the way

as they savor their treats.

 

They lurch into a sudden sprint

toward my small corner house.

I can hear their fingers scratching

as they try to get in.

MUSIC SERIES – Goblins at the Door

Gettin’ into that Halloween spirit with a poem inspired by the Monster Mash. 😉

 

Goblins at the Door

 

Growling, griping, groveling

the goblins come gallivanting,

smashing my gardens underfoot;

demanding tribute to their devilry.

 

They gnash and flip and wail

until I fling open the oaken door

and they stare in startled silence.

So, my pretties…starburst or skittles?

CANDY SHOP – 50 WORD STORY

The sweet, powdery smell of sugar filled the room. We watched children bounce along the counter as they stared down the workers. Spin, knead, cut, repeat. The red-and-white dough they worked shined like plastic as it hardened. Then suddenly, they were done, and the children cheered for hot, sticky samples.
