New Blog Series: Original Haiku

So, all of you who keep up with this blog know that I’ve started posting original poetry on here. I’ve been writing poetry for years and have even had a few pieces published, but it took a lot of soul-searching for me to just start dropping new work on here. That said, a few months ago I went through a period where I wrote a bunch of haiku. After reading through them, I decided I’d like to share them here. Here’s the first one. Please go easy on me.

Haiku I by Fred Slusher

Blood martyr sing-song 
Slow whistling tunes of bones
Bring me a new war
