Soul - Haiku

                                                             (Image Source: http://newspaper.li)


Haunted and creepy,
Besides the old banyan tree,
Stands the Snell Mansion.

Tales revisited,
Madam Snell crafted her art,
Pursuing dark magic.

Witch or Sorceress,
Left to imagination,
Wicked were her goals.

Lived beyond her age,
Died, her body disappeared,
Devils swept over.

Her soul still lingers,
Howling and laughing wildly,
Snell Mansion accursed.

Curse of the evil,
Languishing in Snell Mansion,
Beware my loved pals.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Soul.

  8. This is by no means an Haiku. Just saying.

    An Haiku is a three line verse where two conflicting ideas are juxtaposed.
