Haiku – Diamonds & Pearls

Choose your metaphor:
Crush coal to make the diamond;
Grit that makes the pearl.

One formed by pressure.
The other takes what life throws,
Makes it beautiful

  1. An amazing pair Al, I don’t know how your creative imagination can pour out those Zombies day after day and then come up with these wonderful pearls, oops ! What is your secret? monkey glands? jungle juice? a little mix of this and that? or is it genetic?
