Night Clings Haiku: Find Your Horror Spirit Animal

The night waits in trees.

With long, sharpened claws, it clings.

Eyes covered with wings.


If you’ve ever heard the wind howl, felt the heat of a furnace burnishing your skin as you’d imagine a dragon’s breath would, or the chill of winter biting at your exposed ankles, then you’ve experienced how monsters can disguise themselves in the most innocent ways.

The orange striped coat hanging in the darkened hall takes on the shape of a lurking tiger. Should you dare move and risk becoming dinner?

SMM would love to hear your creature-inspired poetry! Just as Poet Rummager’s haiku about night was transformed into a bat, we yearn to read about your creative venture into a most diabolical masquerade.
