Write a Long Dark Haiku

Recommended Posts

Hey survivors, I thought I'd experiment with a little game-inspired haiku. Not exactly a born-poet here -- why not keep me company and add your own? ;)

The crunching of snow
Soft solitude falls in flakes
I breath a tired sigh

or

Find a frozen corpse
With both delight and despair
Moldy candy bar

Hold down the Shift key while you press Enter and you get line break without starting a new paragraph. :)

Green eyes in the woods
Brave embers fight for our lives
A breeze brings us peace

Outside the snow falls,

Wind raging against the woods,

I await sunrise

Crows flee the wind

Borealis screams in rage

Shelter warm indoors

Happy World Poetry Day!

Surrounded by snow.
That guy who drank his own pee
Not so crazy, now.

Blood clots in the snow
Wait, what's that in the thicket?
Supper is ready...

Gently bobs my float
Light dances on the water
The trout won’t bite though

 

The trees look all grey
A sea of fog cloaks the woods
Each step silence grows

 

Cold creeps up the bones
‘A little rest could not hurt’

The void reels me in

 

A wet sleeping bag
Hail and snow pummel the skin
Was it worth the risk?

Fingers growing numb
Can't even feel that trigger
A wolf has a meal

Freezing, I can't stop
The other side indistinct
Rails arc, for how long?
