I wrote this haiku for Free Verse Revolution last Halloween and it’s one of my favourites. Then I recently came across this beautiful image on Facebook and I had a light bulb moment.

This is the result in all its tingly glory, are you looking forward to Halloween?

The Funeral

In Remembrance…


The day was cold and wet

When mourners gathered that day

To pay their respects


A hole in the ground

Prepared to receive its host

Dimensions Precise


A sombre moment

Casket; polished wood and brass

Slips through bearers hands


While words recited

Remind of good times gone by

And hymns sung in praise


It’s time to move on

Sadness fades but not today

Eat, drink, be thankful

Haiku from the Hill



Head fogged up again
Lightening shooting through the brain
Relapse has its day




Safe in my shadow
Incapacitated; yes
Anxiety blows




Depression clamps hard
The mind shuts down, disables
Frustrated; why, why
