Shroud

(Image Source: http://www.jcvalencia.com)


Shrouding sinner past,
Skeletons shout from cupboard,
Travelling through hell.

Rain, rain, fiery rain,
Demons sing death lullaby,
Shroud me in your soul.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Shroud.

  5. Of course, in the soul is safety in such a hell hole of a house! Holding your narrator--and all who play with the forces of the dark--in the Light. Powerfully rendered!

  6. There's a melody here.. I sense it in the sing song lines, rain rain, fiery rain. Hello Amrit, it's been a while since my last visit. Hopefully I can catch up but I know everything I've missed from your blog is absolutely amazing. I just know. You are a brilliant writer, and you have such a way with words. It's refreshing as always. Looking forward to reading your previous posts! All in due time of course.
