TBD on Ning

Ready for a new one? May we try something different? I have been tripping of late through my old tunes and find many memories stirred through the process. They are coming out in my haikus. Loose rules here except for the 5-7-5 standard. Write a haiku about your favorite tune, capture favorite lines from your song, write about your favorite songwriter or however you choose to do it. You can tell what the song is if you like or have your friends guess. Let's have some fun here and bring back some of our favorite tunes. Might be a way of honoring our "heroes" of younger years. Below are a couple of haikus from our prior discussions as examples:

I talk to the wind
time to say goodbye my dear
the wind does not hear

(by Scott Williamson in 'Goodbye and Wind')

OR -

c'mon and touch me
can't you see I'm not afraid
c'mon touch me babe

I like to dream, yes

right between my sound machine

on a cloud of sound


magic carpet ride

why not tell your dreams to me

sounds take you away


mama's got squeeze box

daddy never sleeps at night

she goes in and out




For My Beloved--This house is empty now for a very different reason but, nonetheless, so terribly lonely without you. I love you so.


this house is empty

reflections of love remain

echoes of laughter




through nightmare vision

he sees nothing, only well

stranger to himself


(do not know if this link will work......Traffic     Stranger to Himself - good tune)



feeling warm and right

super natural delight

dancing in moonlight...




King Harvest - Dancin' in the Moonlight

one thing you can't hide

is when you're crippled inside

live until you die


To R.


no starting over

soon you'll have to face the fact

we're parallel lines

For My Eternal Beloved, Mo Dhuine, D.


they can't comprehend

what we mean to each other...

say we are mated


things have kept us down

we won't let them hold us back...

no stopping us now


wet wind on sidewalk

feet are tired, my brain is numb

broken neon sign


another Harry's bar

in think blue haze, feel no pain

that's the tale they tell


Harry's long gone now

the ghost will make this world right

it'll all turn right


red king hummingbird

upon your perch, say the word

fall down on my knees


everywhere I go

I feel you there, do you know

do you even care


for all we two know

we may never meet again...

make this moment sweet


we won't say goodnight

'til the very last minute...

my heart's in my hand


for all we two know

this may only be a dream...

ripples on a stream


so love me tonight

tomorrow may never come

for all we two know

I'll love you forever, My Dearest.
