Character Haiku ~ Rayne

Last Sunday, I posted a Haiku based on the character Demetri Bithanos from the Dragon Queen series. As promised, I’ve written another Haiku. This one is about Rayne, the deadly Dragon Queen herself.

Haiku is a Japanese poetry form. A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. It is like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself.

Traditionally, haiku is written in three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. Haikus are usually based on nature, or the scenery around you, but this Haiku is using a character as the focal point.

As the offspring of two creatures spawn from the light and the darkness, Rayne was opened to a world of blood and shadows after living 20 years of her life in the guise of a human. Enjoy!

Daughter of Heaven and hell

Wings spread, shadows fall
