Hamlet In Haiku: Act 1

Act 1

Scene I

Who’s there? Friends only.
Silent, spectral father-king.
Cock crows; prince awaits.

Scene II

Seems? Alone in grief sustained.
The king, your father.

Scene III

Sad parting siblings –
obey thy father’s counsel –
ne’er to meet again.

Scene IV

within; without, fate beckons.
Still-silent spirit.

Scene V

Foul murder: avenge!
Swear by my sword! Remember…
So, Uncle: adieu.
