Jewelry Haiku and Limerick

Mad Kane's current prompt is "jewelry, crafts and engagements".

I read this haiku and the following limerick ov
er the phone to my son in Denver. The limerick brought a snort of laughter, then he said, "Isn't that kind of gruesome?" So, in order that you not think that I am bloodthirsty, I offer the haiku first:

Diamond ring sparkles
intentions of life-long love.
Plain gold ring seals it.

Yes, that's my hand and it shows my age.
I was holding my camera in one hand
to take a picture of the other hand.
My diamond really sparkles a lot more than that!

CHOKER (limerick)

Amanda was known to be feckless
And also was frequently reckless.
With a flick of her wrist
Her beads were atwist
And she strangled herself with her necklace.

The limerick is a little gruesome perhaps but it still made me smile...

Well I wasn't expecting this kind of poem from you! However it made me smile! I like funny ones, gruesome or not!

Yes gruesome and funny, and yes your beautiful ring sparkles like your marriage. Happy 67th wedding anniversary.
