Austentatious Haiku

by Patti Wigington

Truth universal
Such passion might pollute the
Shades of Pemberley

Persuaded by Bath
Love found, lost and found again
Her words pierce his soul

Dark gothic abbey
“Mysteries of Udolpho”
Hearts joined in ruins

Matchmaker matching
Finds herself undone by her
Own willful spirit

Sisters three, one young,
One says too much, one speaks not,
Many mixed signals

Poor girl, country house
Sharp social commentary
Love is right next door

Curled up quietly
Cat in lap, coffee in hand,
So lost in Austen
