Example #1:

War Path
 
Fractured wanderer
leaving a tortured city,
hammocked insecurely.
 
Quenched of thirst for blood,
he may now respect beauty,
unappreciated 'fore.

Example #2:

Disturbing Raven
 
Dark clouds cloak the night;
chilly winds creak gnarled branches,
grasping as bony fingers.
 
Disturbed Raven squawks
at frightened children - screaming,
then laughing - they throw him treats.
 
Copyright 2004 James Dean Chase
 

Example #3:

October 31st
 
Ghosties and goblins
Witches, black cats and broomsticks,
All Hallows Eve comes tonight.
 
Children coming by
arms out calling trick or treat
Hall-o-ween ghosts and goblins.
