Familiar and She
Full moon lights their dance within
Dark one's pentacle

I like this one very much, it's magical! Is the familiar (maybe in a form of a cat or a bird) and She the same person? Could witches do that, be split into two and dance together? Pardon my curiousity, this is how I perceived the meaning of your haiku and it interests me if I got it correctly. Or maybe, 'She' is the witch and she has a familiar (which is always the case, right?) and they were dancing together. Yes, I guess, the latter is what's making sense. I have never outgrown stories of Hansel & Gretel and such. Bear with my childishness, CJ... But all in all I delight in this poem. Thanks, very good haiku!

Namaste Peter
and thank you too.
Familiar represents just that, her cat or bird....and yes they dance together in the pentacle.
I am glad you liked this haiku. And I am always delighted with your perspective.
