Hairs rise, light quivers

The floorboards creak, hallways howl

Each step brings shivers


This haunted haiku is brought to you by Vocal + Assist's weekly spooky month challenges! We wanted to do something simple yet engaging to spark some creative thinking. This past week's key word was: shivers.

You can check out more about what's happening at the Vocal + Assist Facebook group here, and also check out another member's shiver poem below.
