certain of sprouting  afresh!

Haibun – Eerie & Costume

The bet is to watch a horror movie versus a romantic one. I am so confident of winning the bet with my friend that I do not think twice before agreeing to the same. Alas, now I curse my luck on losing the bet. I am compelled to watch a horror movie in the cinema with her. The thought is already giving me jitters and sleepless nights. Donning a brave facade, I accompany her. The movie has a sinister touch to it. Somehow I manage to sit through most of it.  As the climax unfolds, I can literally hear my own heart pounding. Trepidation grips me. I am petrified and surrender to complete panic and fear.

Stranded in the woods

eerie sounds sends forth shivers

amidst the total darkness

ghoulish costumed skeletons emerge

my scream pierces the  silence of the theatre!
