Poe Haiku and contest at Innsmouth Free Press
blog to her haiku homage but I resisted. Eventually I came around as the zombies begged for a chance to try the 5-7-5 syllabic poems and the Zombie Dating Guide haikus took over my life.
Today I found the Innsmouth Free Press Poe Haiku contest via twitter. The heavens opened up (as I love Poe) and I let loose three poems that had nary a zombie. Care to try your hand? The contest closes October 15th and there are prizes, Internet! YAY! It's a dandy little website so take a look around, don't be shy!
Children of Poe seek
Refuge in darkness while they
Paint eyes black and weep
The subtle ticking
Of secrets hidden beneath
The floor rots within
Poe was mistaken
It was no raven that brought
The gloom, it was but the night
Okay, I didn't say they were good. Show me those Poe poems, people! It's on like Donkey Kong...
