Mythical Haiku

Hades abducts her

Persephone eats the fruit

Trapped for half the year

This haiku depicts the story of Hades abducting Persephone. She eats the pomegranate, and in result she has to spend six months with Hades and the other six she can spend with her mother.


  1. That pretty much sums it up! Greek Myth was one of my favorite classes my Freshman year, so it was a real treat to see this show up on the course site.

  2. This is such a fun haiku! You managed to tell the entire story of Hades and Persephone in such a brief amount of time which is really impressive.
