Ghostly Dance

Apparitions through

graveyard prance

Movement in

ghostly dance

Cold whispers

through night

Spines chilled

warmth despite

Ghostly demons

working darkness

Evil desires

souls to distress


Coming forth

beholding night


Frantic to flee

from the Light!

Gentle Souls – A Hay(na)ku




Gentle Souls


In endless flight

(Image Source:

 This is in Hay(na)ku form.

“Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third.

Hay(na)ku is considered a modern poetry genre, first presented in June 2003. According to J Zimmerman, in a traditional Hay(na)ku, there are:

A tercet: 3 lines.
A total of 6 words: 1 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 3 in the third line.
There is no restriction on syllables or stressed or rhymes.


In the ‘reverse’ haynaku, the longest line is placed first and the shortest last. The total is still 6 words: 3 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 1 in the third line.
Multiple hay(na)ku can be chained to form a longer poem.”
