Humour, Poems and Yarns from the Pen of a Complete Novice.
Love this one.Don't laugh, but I've always felt rather sorry for those poor scarecrows hanging there in all weathers. More than once, I've been tempted to sneak in and cut one down!!!
Hi Windsmoke,As soon as I read your Haiku, it reminded me of the movie:"Children of the Corn"Did you ever see it? A supernatural-horror movie they ended up making 4 movies altogether.
Scarecrows and clowns have always scared me. A creepy one but a good one. Thanks Windsmoke.
This one is very visual.
It reminds me of a picture I saw on a blog today of a squirrel hanging, frazzled on an electricity wire!! Deep, Windsmoke!
Dark but good post!
G' Day YGRAINE: I had a bit of a chuckle but i see your point :-).G' Day MAGS: Check out the two movies Jeepers Creepers they are along the same lines :-).G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: At a young age my daughter was scared of them to but not now :-).G' Day RIVER & BEACH: Absolutely :-).G' Day PERTH: Poor Squirrel :-).
Love those scratchy images ... and yes, I immediately thought of 'Children of the Corn' too!!
I like this very much except for one word: why do you call the skeletons "ugly"? They are iconic, not ugly. They are the stuff of poetry and art. It's just that poets and artists have not yet found their measure.Don't take this to heart, though: your haiku is a goodun!
G' Day RED: "Scratchy Images" i like that description very much :-). G' Day DAVE: I'm not calling skeletons ugly, i'm calling scarecrows ugly. I was trying to describe how some people view scarecrows and ugly was one of the words that came to mind. I've not taken your question to heart in fact i thank you for it :-).
