Haiku Heights, prompt "gem"

Did you have a good week? I hope so. I had a busy day at work and with writing essays for Wonder Haiku Worlds about haiku written by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) a haikumaster. I also started a new weblog about Matsuo Basho on which I publish the same essays. Every essay tells something about a haiku by Basho and in every episode I write (or try to write) a new haiku in the Spirit of Basho.
Well ... back to this weeks Haiku Heights prompt "gem". Gem or the synonyms jewel, treasure or pearl. Again a challenge to write some new haiku with this prompt, but ... I have to try of course.

Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

a gem stone
found among the goods
of grandma

in the moonlit night
walking on the seashore
necklace of pearls

it's my treasure
grandma's necklace of pearls
the jewelry box

the shining stars
of the Milky Way
looking like pearls

inbetween leaves
the twinkling of raindrops
nature's treasure

Well .... I think this was a nice prompt. Hope you did like my haiku :)

'till next week
