TJ’s Household Haiku – Jewel Box

This week TJ has given us Jewel Box as a prompt.

How could I not have a jewellery box, I’M INDIAN!

I have many, actually, filled with beautifully coloured bangles and adornments. Yes, I do have the real deal, but that is kept safely in the bank, as I feel to scared to keep it in my house!

What I keep at home is many, many boxes of different artificial jewellery, and over the years I have accumulated all manner of pieces!

All I know is that when the time comes, I have plenty to hand down to my daughter, and future daughter-in-law!

When I got married, I was given a beautiful set of wooden jewellery boxes from my dear university friends, and my mum bought me lovely metal bangle holders. These are what I have used for the inspiration for this post!


Wooden troves filled with
Glittering treasures and gems
Adornments for me

Row after row of bangles
Waiting for your arms

And as I was trying to be an artistic photographer… I had an assistant! He needs to be featured too!


Cats do love boxes
Seriously, any box
Even shiny ones!

    What exquisite boxes! Such a lovely thing to have, especially when they are a gift. Great haiku (s) (never sure if haiku is a plural or not!) I think I must be a cat, I always wonder what is in the box. Happy Sunday!

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
