Haiku Monday ~ Hunter/Hunted...

Hello all. I know it's late but thank you for joining me for Haiku Monday. This weeks contest is being hosted by Uncle over at Aunty Belles blog. Only rules this week are the 5-7-5 rhythm and the theme is Hunter/Hunted.  Even though each haiku can stand alone, together they tell a story. Enjoy ~CoreyJo

The Hunter

Searching for his prey,
he prowls deserted alleys.
Ah! Footsteps at last..

The Hunted

Echoed breaths taunt.
Fear grips her, paralyzing.
He lunges, she flees.

The Chase

Devious laughs ring loud,
chasing her throughout the night.
Evil closes in.

The Kill

Vigorous struggles.
Absolute domination.
Deaths kiss: Sweet release.



  1. most delightful!!
    no wonder you said you struggled a bit. it is quite elaborate, but you achieved it!!

  2. Kudos to you Corey Jo!
    Fabulous haiku, one and all.
    the bar is getting set higher each week me thinks!

    Have a great week!

    May I leave you a hug?

  3. Sublime!
    Need I say more?
    Now that I know the imagery came AFTER the haiku, it is amazing how well both images and words fit!
    And the crescendo, slowly leading us to the last image... Brilliant!

    Hugs ♫♪♫

  9. CoreyJo--

    Take it from one that's traversed a dark alley a time or two...BULLSEYE!!!

    Awe, such sweet memories...

    Seriously, all of them are wonderful together as a tale. Individually, "the chase" is my fave followed closely by "the kill", as both are so full of passion and desire.

    LOVE 'EM!!


  10. Rafa~

    You are too silly. :)

    I don't know where it all came from. I was blank forever, and then it was just there!

    "The kill" is my favorite. The last line in particular. ;)

    Thank you!!
