A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.
Now, I don’t want to be too prescriptive, so let’s say your little poem should have no more than three lines and 13 words AT MOST and should instill a horror emotion such as fear, terror or despair…yes, I can feel all you haiku aficionados turning in your very tiny coffins…please don’t take too much offense.
Here’s my very quick effort:
Dark scream spears heart
Follow blood trail
Okay, what are you waiting for. As usual, post your scary poems in the comments section. Good luck!!!
BRILLIANT efforts so far!
