Welcome back my poetic horror writers ❤

First up from our featured poet of the month, Nano Horror, is not a haiku, but a horror quatrain. A quatrain is defined as “a stanza of four lines, especially one having alternate rhymes.”


While other kid’s imaginations
Were happily confined,
My own private recreations
Were of a darker kind.

-Nano Horror (@tweetsthecreeps)


Next up, a haiku paired with a delightfully disturbing image from David Tulley, I love the unexpected twist on who’s speaking:

Next, a poem from Brainmist, which, if you subscribe to my email list you can get a free download of the printer friendly coloring page version:

plunging silence

And a from Haiku of Horror a clever turn of phrase based on a fascinating looking movie:

Last, but certainly not least, a little existential horror to round out your afternoon with a haiku from David Bradley Bailey:

no gods mercy

Thank you all so much for stopping by and if you’d like to join in and potentially have your poem featured here next week use #horrorhaikuesday on Twitter or Instagram and I’ll find it 🙂
