Cacophony for Haiku Heights

You finger your ears
those tender ears, not made for
Death Metal marvels.

To Death Metal. To Cannibal Corpse. To bleeding ears.


Death (Metal) Haiku

Ghastly, morbid tunes
Fierce guitar riffs, blast beats
Celebrating Death.
To Cannibal Corpse. To Death Metal.


Cannibal Corpse

Cannibal Corpse, the finest death metal act on Earth, is infamous for their album art covers (see Butchered at Birth, Vile, and more) and renowned for extreme metal songs like Frantic Disembowelment, Demented Aggression, Hammer Smashed Face, Make Them Suffer and many more. The band members (Alex Webster (bass), Paul Mazurkiewicz (drums) , Rob Barrett (guitar), George Corpsegrinder Fisher (vocals) and Pat O’Brien (guitar) are all phenomenal musicians and lovely human beings (unlike the theme of Cannibal Corpse).

For me Death Metal is a great source to vent out all the negative energy and fill my insides with positivity. It empowers me and reminds that I have the potential to achieve anything and everything. My encounter with Death Metal or Metal (as a whole) is the best thing that has happened in my life.

The Last Haiku for September and more

Free Haiku

The wanting exists

you are happiest with her

my feelings must die.


Battlefield Haiku

Every day without you

is like fighting a battle

my heart yearns for you.


Agile Haiku

He comes with his tool

and his fingers run like spider

as he nails it.

To Alex Webster for being so awesome.


Waltz Haiku


she starts her session

and I gape.


Sleep Haiku

His lifeless body

rests calmly near the road

we watch and walk off.

To us who want tragedy from a safe distance and enjoy.


Paradox Haiku

Blossoming friendship

enter chaos, confusion

can someone save it?


Hummingbird Haiku

Tiny you start to fly

the nectar invites you

O! my hummingbird.


Birth Haiku

Half dead I drag myself

the much needed hot brew

I am born again.


September was a month I can’t forget, so much has happened in life, but one thing that stayed with me was haiku. I tried to write everyday, sometimes missed the prompts but in the end I am so happy that I composed on all the prompts. I met some really cool haiku poets at Haiku Heights. April, O! April please come soon.
