Umbrage, a Harry Potter Haiku

Trees’ cool, deep umbrage

Guards winding, secret trails. Run-

Dolores Umbridge.


I found it interesting that umbrage has another meaning, besides “a feeling of pique or resentment at some often fancied slight or insult”. Umbrage also means shade, shadow, shady branches – how beautiful – as well as hint, suspicion.

It was the shady meaning of umbrage that sparked this haiku.

You can enjoy more haiku on this page of my website or in my new book of poetry and haiku, As Good AS Gold:

“I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a dog lover. I’m more a cat person so I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy As Good As Gold, celebrating dogs. I needn’t have worried. I thoroughly enjoyed this charming collection of verse and as a result of reading it I think I understand dogs so much better.” @Lindahill50Hill, Book Reviewer

There is something truly magical about this wonderful collection. Having read each poem, I love how every word celebrates our canine companions from the tip of their wet noses to the wag of their tails.” (Susan Day, Editor and Author)

As Good As Gold is also available as an e-book, paperback and in Large Print, colorful pictures, a dyslexia friendly edition: get it on Amazon UK, Amazon US
