Gems

Please do not be fooled
All that glitters is not gold…
Take Diamonds and Pearls…

icy diamond eyes

Don’t Let That Look Fool You

Icy diamond eyes
Seemed out of place compared to
Her pearlescent skin

And finally….

Prince

Through his Purple reign
Prince showered on us Diamonds
And Pearls, gems of songs

    I do love the way you wrote the first two and really loved Prince. He was such a caring and giving musician, lyricist and artist. I like that he gave the Bangles, “Manic Monday,” and Sinead O’Connor, a beautiful love song! I heard the song, “Party like its 1999” and got teary eyed, since my Dad loved this one and he died in 2001. Ritu, I like your haikus and how they led to Prince. Smiles, Robin

      Thank you so much Robin, as soon as I think of Diamonds and Pearls I always think of Prince,MPs I went without saying that at least one Haiku needed to be in his honour! 😊

    You are raising the bar for others. One is tough enough, three at a time. And for one who neither wears either diamonds or pearls😭😭

    The title Diamonds and Pearls lured me in! Like them. Loved the ‘pearlescent skin’ – some people have this jealous look from blonde writer

    As I quoted on another Blog… “Whoever said that diamonds are a girls best friend, has never owned a dog!”
