Locks and keys




pink, blue, shiny locks 
like fanning peacock feathers,  
catching buyers' eye    

~0~0~

keys in my pocket
like seashells in my white vase,   
fitful goodnight sleep 

~0~0~

there are letters, notes
better kept locked in boxes,
truth can be bitter

  2. Something should be locked away but others put on display, guess we just have to pick and chose and hope we don't lose.

  4. Awesome triplet. Thanks for sharing. I love the third haiku the most. Locking away ... words and letters that aren't for everyone's eyes. Good job.
