Haiku #2

As part of the Daily Post Haiku Challenge, here’s my second haiku:

Step-daughter and -son

Discover evil amidst

The child has no skin

I’m trying to tell a short story I’m working on with these five challenge haikus. So the above may not make sense unless you read the first bit. I’ll string these all together in each post in hopes that they’ll read a bit more coherently. By the way, this is a re-imagining of the Brothers Grimm’ version of Brother and Sister.

N. E. White’s version of Brother and Sister in Haiku Form (incomplete)

A witch comes to roost,

Head high, eyes bright, child at heels,

To fight skin-deep hate.

Step-daughter and -son

Discover evil amidst.

The child has no skin.

    1. I’m not entirely sure it is a good idea, but it seemed cool when I saw the daily post challenge yesterday. We’ll see if any of it makes sense by Friday. 🙂
