Don’t cry little coal

You are a diamond in the rough

A pearl in love’s eyes

Don’t cry wee oyster

There’s a seed in your belly

Bright like a diamond

    Love the second one! 🙂

    Both wonderful, I, for some reason, really like number two. It has a “cute” quality – maybe – that just speaks to me.

    Have a blessed weekend, Vashti 🙂

    LOVE this! The way you mixed them both together, yet kept them separate. Clever, most clever indeed

    These haiku are so sweet, Vashti! I imagined mother nature soothing a tantrummy coal and oyster.

    You have excelled here Vashti, such interaction between diamonds and pearls yet sharing their individuality and incredibly creative

    Loved them both, Vashti. I got a feeling like it could be a part of a children’s book. (Don’t cry little girl / Please show me your smile again / So my world can shine) 🙂
