Bad Haikus for National Poetry Day

It’s National Poetry Day and to celebrate here are two topical Gaskella original haiku(s?) plugging my current reading trail… Sorry but they’re the best I can do in the short time available. Please feel free to slag them off and show me how to write a haiku properly – I can just about get the 5-7-5 and a seasonal reference, but finesse comes a lot harder!

Nights are drawing in,
Season of the Living Dead
on Gaskella’s blog.

Autumnal sunshine
Lifts the spirits when reading
Books about vampires.

These books are obviously beginning to get to me!
