Three Rock Haiku by Dennis Lange

The Bard on the Hill


Rocky Stream

The stones flow
In a hard river
Past the shore.

——————– 

 

Crafted With Care

Stone mason,
A circled circle –
An artist.

——————– 

 

The Rock Ranks

All armies:
Cold, hard, dead, and stone
In the end.

The first use of the word “vampire” in English wasn’t until 1734, when it was mentioned in a book called Travels of Three English Gentlemen. Although the idea of the “undead” returning to attack the living is ancient and occurs in many cultures, the bloodsucking vampire we recognise today arose in south-eastern Europe in the 17th century. Versions of the word “vampire” exist in all the Slavic languages and some linguists have traced it back to ubyr, the Tatar word for “witch”. via QI: Quite interesting facts about vampires – Telegrap
