everything in her flowers;
they gave nothing back.
Daisy petals lied;
withered when her father died.
Pansies lacked heart’s ease.
Rue’s reprieve; she made good end.
Pray you remember.

Ingrid is host for dVerse’s Tuesday’s Poetics: An Homage to the Bard and even though I’m teaching class this evening I had to share some haiku about my favorite Shakespearean character Ophelia from the tragedy, Hamlet.
