Hello and welcome to Haiku Friday! Today’s prompt words are Lock and Gab via RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge. Visit Ron’s blog, RonovanWrites, and join in the fun! I had a hard time with the prompt words this week. I tried to write a slightly humorous haiku this week. Let me know what you think.
Babble, Jabber, Blab
by Vashti Quiroz-Vega
Unfastened the lock
Let yourself into my heart
Gabbed your way back out
“The road to hell is paved with gossip.”
“Words! What power they hold. Once they have rooted in your psyche, it is difficult to escape them. Words can shape the future of a child and destroy the existence of an adult.
Words are powerful. Be careful how you use them because once you have pronounced them, you cannot remove the scar they leave behind.”
I fell in-love with these words . . .
“Kind words are the music of the world.
They have a power which seems to be
beyond natural causes, as if they were
some angel’s song which had lost its way
and come to earth.”
~ Frederick William Faber
