Haiku H059

Hell hath no fury
Like that of a woman scorned?
That’s cause I’m still here!

Notes to this poem…

The first two lines of this haiku are by William Shakespeare, of course, written as a statement, not a question as here. They are among his most famous lines, and happened to fit into the 5-7 meter of a haiku. It was something I realized as I contemplated writing a short poem about a response I recently gave to someone quoting that line to me.

The response was an exaggeration. I had allowed myself to get insulted about something that I could have easily rationalized out there was no need to feel insulted. But I’m not one to pass up some free motivation, you know what I mean? 🙂

The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
