birds before jewels

for colour

diamonds and pearls lose

to rainbows

Give me a few minutes of watching Rainbow Lorikeets messing about like this pair a few nights ago than worrying about the insurance value of a diamond ring or string of pearls.

This haiku is my contribution to https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/04/25/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-94-diamondspearls/

where haiku poets from around the globe spin their art of words and imagery.

  1. Brilliant! I have just been trying/struggling to get a similar sentiment out of the two prompt words this week – I’m not there yet – your haiku prompted a cheer from me!

    1. Thanks Sandra, I hope it guides you. I had these images for an article I wrote for a local government environment group newsletter and they spoke to me for the prompt. I’ll have to do another one for your WORK image.
