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

Witch sees their folly,

magicks Brother into deer,

Daughter full of shame.

I’m trying to tell a short story I’m working on with these five challenge haiku. So the above may not make sense unless you read the first bits. I’ll string these all together in each post in hopes that it will all be coherent.

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.

Sister and Brother

Flee. Hunted by witch and child.

A seed breeds darkness.

Witch sees their folly,

magicks Brother into deer,

Daughter full of shame.
