A Haiku, Bar Stool

This haiku is a little different than what I have shared in the past. It focuses on the sobriety of a troubled character in my upcoming novel. Jacob Riley carries a moniker that no one would be proud of that being the town drunk. He knows people laugh at him and talk about him soContinue reading “A Haiku, Bar Stool”

A Poem, Pandora’s Box

A little Greek Mythology anyone?How about Pandora’s box? I can remember learning about the Greek myth of Pandora’s box back in high school and thinking, “Wow, what an interesting myth.”Long story short, Pandora was sculpted from clay by the Greek God Hephaestus and was purposely given deceitful gifts by the Gods to punish mankind. SheContinue reading “A Poem, Pandora’s Box”

A Haiku, The Moon

I recently did a haiku on the sun, so I figured it was only right to do one on the moon as well. I snapped this picture last night of the moon shining so brightly.

TheyContinue reading “A Haiku, The Deer”
