Writing With Gibran - Pearls . August 9, 2014

Todays quote on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai from Khalil Gibran is:

[...] "Perhaps the sea's definition of a shell is the pearl. Perhaps time's definition of coal is the diamond." [...]

[...] "A pearl is a temple built by pain around a grain of sand." [...]
 Here are two haiku written by Chèvrefueille:

catching oysters
to serve to my beloved wife -
pearl necklace

© Chèvrefeuille

wandering along the sea
in the footprints left an oyster
shimmering of a pearl

© Chèvrefeuille
 The second verse struck me more than the first ...

pearls of wisdom
gleaned from the pain of living
mother fox runs
© G.s.k. '14
old monk walking
gifting his pearls to the youth
under evening rain

© G.s.k. '14

an oyster opened
inside a resplendent pearl
on an empty beach

© G.s.k '14


  1. I like that you connected the pearls to the wisdom..

    youthful ignorance
    pearls for swine


  2. years will turn the irritant
    into sought after treasure

    Thanks for the comment and the ku! Have a great Sunday.

  3. The most natural? The oyster on the empty beach - though that is becoming as rare as pearls.
    Wise is the fox that runs from the hounds. If only the students would value the monks pearls...

    Thanks for your visit.

  4. Lovely comments! Thanks for visiting yourself! have a great week.
