Loshon Horah Haiku

My unthinking tongue
has been pickled in karma.
I say nothing more.

Artist's Description

Loshon Horah, directly translated as The Evil Tongue, is a term used in Judaism for ‘gossip’. The spreading of rumours. Talking behind a person’s back. Planting ideas about one person in another’s mind.

I had written a disrespectful description of someone online, with no bad intention, entirely unthinkingly, until someone alerted me to it… I spent a long time meditating over trying to be more conscious about what I say.
