Truism Haiku Jealousy

It overwhelms heart felt love
Envy kills friendships

This haiku was inspired by Jane Johnson’s August 20, 2018 WordPress post Careful now, your bitterness is showing…

And to make WordPress more interesting, Ester Newton must have read my mind and knew what I was posting, because I just saw her challenge this week is to write a story, limerick or poem on the subject of friends. I’m glad I used the word ‘friendship’ in the haiku. Link to her WordPress blog.
