Haiku Heights prompt. Measure. Once again, I’m stretching poetic license to create the haiku below. Please humour me 🙂
Measure for measure
Shakespeare blows the trumpet loud
Forgive, says the Lord

Well, considering his accomplishments 🙂
Indeed. He is already forgiven. 🙂
So it comes down to this: Who are you going to follow, Shakespeare or the Lord?
Oh, you know it is the Lord. 🙂
I love your creativity.
Thanks my friend 🙂
That inspires me! 🙂

Another very clever interpretation 🙂
Thank you, Gilly
It is not that easy to forgive and forget at times, after all we are human… valid point raised Celestine!!
You have a point Reshma. But forgiveness will certainly make the world a better place

I think you might have to explain this one to me.
I will my dear. Shakespeare’s play Measure for Measure is basically a tit for tat sort of play. It’s also known as As You Will. A lot of people know it by the latter name. So I tried to use the title Measure for Measure to drive home the theme of forgiveness. 🙂 Hope I’ve been clear enough.
O nice! I like where you went with this Haiku.
Thank you, Audrina. 🙂
Luckily for us, the Lord forgives without measure!
And His mercies endureth forever 🙂
You did great here, my friend!
Thanks a million
