Crook Or Craft

By crook or craft or
pale moonlight, I'll have your lips
'fore the pass of night.

And, I'll have your skin,
bloodless and bare, wrapped round my
bones; I'll have your hair.

Your skull, your spine, your
tend'rest parts.  But, fear not, love,
you can keep your heart.

For Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Sizzling passion ... what a way to hone a craft!! Nicely done ~~

Bringing the grue like no other. Well, almost no other. Probably the most unhaiku-like haiku I've ever read, and all the better for it.

You are amazing, MZ! And, yes, romantic and creepy all at the same time!! Hope your week is going well!

Like the chill and romance in the triple haiku set ~

I think you are getting better and better with this form ~

Love the set.

Laurie Kolp said...

Great rhythm and tone here, MZ!

I love the way you slipped some internal rhyme into your haiku - it just lifted a very beat-less form to something with a whole lot of pizzazz.

Oh really cool, really harnessing the gothic here. Also love that you brought back your pieces composed of haikus, they are always good reads. Thanks
