Leading up to the July 4th marathon of 'Twilight Zone' episodes on Syfy, somebody in the T-Zone Facebook page suggested using haiku to describe episodes of this classic anthology series. And my fellow members of the group rose to the occasion.
So as we head into this spooky month, I'd like to share those 'Twilight Zone' haiku (haikus?) which I thought were the best.
Plus three of mine.....
I'm going to begin with one of mine, not because I'm that much of an egomaniac, but because the topic was the pilot episode of the series shown as a one-off on the 'Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse'.

As the Trickster once said, "Reality is boring, that's why I change it whenever I can."

Most of my theories about the TV Universe come from thinking inside the box and thus can't be proven. But I've never been one to shy away from a tall tale.....
