Diamonds and Pearls


Ronovan’s prompt words for this week’s haiku challenge are in remembrance of Prince.  The  prompt words are ‘diamonds’ and ‘pearls’.  My haiku incorporate quotes from Prince’s lyrics.

Love is the master

Diamonds and pearls of love,

heaven’s tapestry.

Just let love decide

Dreams of diamonds and pearls

living together.

Diamonds and Pearls was the thirteenth studio album by Prince;  it was released on October 1, 1991.  The title track, ‘Diamonds and Pearls’ asserts that ‘Love is the master plan’ and ‘Just let love decide’ amidst offers of diamonds and pearls of love.  In another song, ‘Let’s Go Crazy’, the opening verse is:

Dearly beloved,

We are gathered here today,

To get through this thing called life.
