Horror & SF Haiku - From Out of Space & Time

Poetry By: Philip Roberts
Horror



As long as you make a short, sharp statement with each haiku, the theme can be anything. In this collection I have given a mixture of science-fiction and horror verses.

UNCONTROLLED CRAVINGS
Uncontrolled cravings
Insanity prevailing,
Guiding your desires.

UNDER THE EYES OF NIGHT
Under night's lone eye
Terror stalks dark alleyways,
Hunting human prey.

UNDER THE EYES OF THE NIGHT (I)
Under night's bright eyes
Terror stalks dark alleys,
Hunting after prey.

AN UNLIT PIER
An unlit pier that
Houses evil entities,
Baying at the night.

AN UNLIT WHARF
An unlit wharfside
Gibbering figures crouching,
Waiting to leap out.

THE UNNAMEABLE
Unnameable monsters
With long, black-taloned claws,
And evil, pointed beaks.

UNSEEN EYES IN THE DARK (I)
Unseen eyes in the dark
Watch your every move,
Creeping close behind.

UNSEEN EYES IN THE NIGHT (II)
Unseen eyes at night
Watching you from nearby,
Closing for the kill.

THE WILD THING
A wild thing crouching
Ready to leap out at you,
Aiming for your throat.

THE WIND WALKER
Walker on the wind
Drifter on the late-night breeze,
Feared by one and all.

WISPY FIGURES MOVING
Wispy figures moving
In shadows late at night,
Friends? Or evil foes?

WISPY SHADOWS FLICKER
Wispy shadows flicker
Atmosphere full of gloom,
Evil surrounds you.

WOLFLIKE CREATURES CROUCH
Wolflike creatures crouch
Outside your bedroom window,
Howling at the moon.

WORDS OF DOOM
Doleful voices echo
Resounding within your mind,
Chanting words of doom.

YOUR FEARS UNFOLD
When twilight nears
Evil creatures approach and,
All your fears unfold.

YOUR HAUNTED DREAMS
Evil creatures haunt
Your nights; invade your dreams:
Shivers crawl up your spine.

THE WAR OF THE WORLDS
Evil aliens
Creatures of another world,
Conquering the Earth.

WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS
Dark seas crash on shore
Across lifeless continents,
Where humans once trod.

AN ALIEN CREATURE
(I)
A writhing creature
From an alien world, haunting
The lifeless Earth.

ALIEN HORRORS

Alien horrors
Dark evil reaches down to earth,
To touch its prey.

ALIEN INVADERS
Alien invaders
Destroy towns and countries
To make the Earth lifeless.

CORE OF THE PROBLEM
Enzymes that eat rock
Used to excavate this world,
Reaching to the core.

CREATURES FROM THE STARS

Tortured souls writhe
Tormented by alien horrors,
Creatures from the stars.

CYBORG
Onrushing pylons
With long steel arms reaching out,
Grabbing passersby.

DYNAMIC TUNNELLING
Great, loud, dynamic blasts
Tunnelling Earth out; soon
The world is dying.

FINIS
Empty streets and lanes
Where once life had abounded,
Eerie silence reigns.

FROM OUT OF TIME AND SPACE
Insectile monsters
From out of time and space,
Feast on humanity.

FROM THE DEEPS OF SPACE
From deep outer space,
Repulsive, boneless "life" forms,
Slither toward Earth.

THE INVADERS
Enemy life forms
Creatures from another world,
Come to conquer Earth.

MINERS
Great explosions soar
From energy released as,
Unknown beings mine.

NIGHT VESSELS
Powerful motors
Driving through tenebrous waves,
Bring strange vessels near.

NIGHT WATCHERS (II)
Evil figures crouch
In the deep shadows to,
Watch your every move.

STONE MONUMENTS
(II)
Ancient stone monuments
Used by lost cultures,
To worship Elder Gods.

THINKING FUNGUS
Plants that weave mossy webs
Like spiders, to trap their prey:
Thinking fungus.

THINKING SLIME
Thinking slime swirling
Like an evil viper,
Hunting humanity.

THIS
LAND OF DEATH (II)
Screaming through the night
Ceaseless crying through the day,
In this land of death.

THROUGH THE GREAT VOID OF SPACE
Through the void of space
Nameless abominations,
Ooze ever closer.

THROUGH THE
NIGHTFOREST (I)
Air vibrates with fear
As ebony shadows lope,
Through the night forest.

U.F.O.
Enormous craft
Windowless and mysterious,
Coming 'cross lightyears.

TOWARDS THE EARTH
Vast creatures slither
From the depths of outer space,
Heading toward Earth.
