Her Experience (9)

This is fiction told in haiku and tanka style based on Ronovan’s Haiku Prompts. The story moves along the two words he provides weekly.
___

His skin white as milk.
With one short, swift, smooth movement
eviscerated.
Parting flesh colouring red
unfolding like a flower.

Ronovan’s Haiku (tanka) Prompt Challenge #84 (milk & smooth)

**

Holding tight the knife
feeling his warm skin unfold
He sighed only once.

Ronovan’s Haiku Prompt Challenge #85 (tight & warm)

**

A flash of regret
she watched how his blood trails joined
for the dance of death.

Ronovan’s Haiku Prompt Challenge #86 (flash & dance)

**

A class of her own
the firm defending her said.
The jury agreed.

Ronovan’s Haiku Prompt Challenge #87 (class & firm)

**

Solitude lifts fog.
With a clear mind she composed
her plan for parole.

Ronovan’s Haiku Prompt Challenge #88 (lift & plan)

**

Showering the board
Fake regrets and atonement
She played her part well.

Ronovan’s Haiku Prompt Challenge #89 (shower & play)

**

More than just her friend
anticipating her love
he became careless.
Watching her behind those bars,
it send shivers down his spine.

Ronovan’s Haiku (tanka) Prompt Challenge #90 (friend & shiver)
**

Her temper got frayed
after her first rejection.
He ignored the signs.
Her coy manner veiled contempt.
All he saw was playfulness.

Ronovan’s Haiku (tanka) Prompt Challenge #91 (fray & veiled)

**

Men who crossed her path
all thought they could dominate.
They paid with their lives.
Once free, she’d trace the witness
Erasing that one mistake.

Ronovan’s Haiku (tanka) Prompt Challenge #92 (life & path)

      1. Almost forgot! My good intention was to write a haiku with the words then pingback to your post. Anyway, it didn’t happen that way, but I’d decided on the words days ago: vortex, tile.

        Looking forward to reading the next haiku chapter in your story 😊 Thanks for humouring me!
