Day 7 - It's Almost Like Poetry Heaven

Human 76 - A post-apocalyptic secret is in store for you soon!

...or maybe a little south of there.

I'm going to cheat a bit today. The poem for day seven* was written some time ago, but has never seen the light of day—and for good reason.

A long time ago I submitted a couple of haiku to Dreamscape Press. One was for a zombie-themed poetry anthology (can you believe it?) and the other was for a steampunk anthology titled Clockwork Kiru: Steampunk Haiku. Sadly, the zombie haiku was accepted and published in Haiku of the Dead.

I never received any word back on the steampunk book, but I do know my poem was not included. Sometimes you just get lucky. This was one of those times.

The website for Dreamscape Press hasn't been updated in about two years, so I'm guessing they aren't really in business anymore. Got lucky again.

So, with only one haiku for today, the pain will be over before you know it!

Metal Monsters

Machines belching fire;
Metallic dragons enforce
The New World Order

*I'm trying to write a poem each day for National Poetry Month. It's difficult to come up with original titles (that are interesting) for each post. I chose silly instead.

 Here are the links to the poems so far:

   Day 1 National Poetry Month - Kick-off (National Poetry Month)
   Day 2 Haiku, For You (Haiku)
   Day 3 A Poem For Free (The Good Morning Man)
   Day 4 Wait, There's Even More (Monday)
   Day 5 I'm Still Alive (TMI)
   Day 6 I'm Resorting To Tricks (A Walk Through Kipling's Wood)
