Poisonous Demise

Poisonous demise
Wicked stepmother’s revenge
Luscious red apple

Snow White’s collapse
Alarmed the dwarfs and kingdom
Prince Charming’s lost love

Sweet kiss on her lips
Magic moment exchanged
Fairy tale ending

      No, dani, I missed it – but I will go check it out asap!

      This was a fun one … I started with a haynaku – then realized it was for Haiku Heights so I changed direction; then I could not contain my muse to only 17 syllables … feast or famine! LOL 😀
