A Poem, The Werewolf

And now I’m going to venture back into the macabre, dark poetry side for a moment. In this poem, I wrote about one of my favorite mythical beasts growing up, the werewolf. I grew up on movies like The Wolfman, The Howling, Silver Bullet, Wolf (Jack Nicholson), An American Werewolf in London, and Teen Wolf (Michael J. Fox). There are so many more, but I figured I’d name just a few of the classics. What type of hardcore fan would I be if I didn’t write a poem about a werewolf?

So with that said, here we go!

We are the wolves in the night
How did I wind up here covered in crimson?
I hear their howls but yet out of sight
What is this reality or, better yet, prison?
Taste of iron, not my blood
I howl at the moon to let them know I’m around
Why does my adrenaline flood
No longer human skin bound
The wolves steer clear, full of fear
Full moon, in their blood I bask
It is time to feast as I hear humans near
Killing everything in sight is my task
Split their sides wide open with my claws
Pick my teeth with their bones as the bloodlust thaws

Let me know what you think!

A Haiku, The Cold

I let my dog outside this morning and stood on the porch looking over the frozen yard. The sun was poking through onto some parts of the yard melting the frozen dew. The melting happened so quick. I walked down my driveway and back to my porch, and it was gone. It was almost as if the frozen dew was not supposed to be there, and the sun chased it away.

So I wrote this haiku encapsulating the battle between winter and spring.

Morning dew frozen
Cold winds carry brisk breezes
The sun scalds the cold

A Haiku, The Vibrant Lives

Keeping it going with the spring-themed haikus, here is another haiku that I put together this morning.

The daffodils dance
Basking animals frolic
The vibrant sun shines

A Poem, Inspirational Mentality

It’s been a little while since I’ve wrote an inspirational poem, so I wrote this last night.

Go ahead, continue to sit there
Thinking circles in your angry chair
Anger toils as you dwell and glare
Erase that lugubrious face you wear
What good does this hate give?
What does your festering madness solve?
Look upon thyself to forgive
Don’t wallow in pity; it is time to evolve
Your petulance will only lead to comeuppance
Rest your mind and do not break into aggression
Replace the hate with happiness in abundance
Do not allow yourself to be attracted to depression
Replace your anger with great deeds of beneficence
Replace your depression with outflowing benevolence


Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!

A Haiku, The Sun

So here is another spring haiku that I wrote this morning. It is in the 50’s today, and it’s easy to notice the impact the sun has on dormant life.

Dormant life renewed
The sun kisses God’s creatures
Exuberance reigns


Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!

A Haiku, The Windows

I’m sorry, I can’t help it. I have to keep the spring haiku train rolling, so here is another one I thought of this morning:

Music to our ears
Bountiful sounds of nature
Open windows bask

Let me know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
