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

Here come old flat top
he come groovin up slowly
he got jew eyeballs

want holy rollers
he got hair down to his knees
come together now
why she had to go
I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong
won't you come with me
take my hand and walk this land
oh, please take my hand

Garden of Eden...
in a gadda da vida
baby, lovin' you
Imagine by John
Imagine there's no heaven
easy if you try

above only sky
imagine all the people
living for today

isn't hard to do
imagine there's no countries
all living in peace

say I'm a dreamer
but I'm not the only one
no need for greed, hunger

brotherhood of man
I hope some day you'll join us
world will live as one
if i were your child...
you'd hold me in your heart ...we'd
love and never part

if i were a bird...
i'd warm you with my wings, safe
from the storms of life

but i'm not your child
i'm not a bird, and wishes
are only child's play

i'm the moon shining
in your eyes, and you're the sun...
we'll love, come what may

never be ashamed
of who we are and who we're
not, or that we love

i've searched a long time
for someone just like you to
make it all worthwhile

traveling a hard road
needing someone just like you
to honor my heart

i've waited so long,
marching to a different beat,
for someone like you

i've been soul searching
carrying my heavy load
waiting for the light

and, baby, listen....
lately i've realized the
best is yet to come

With someone exactly like you...

good tune and favorite

maybe I'm amazed
way you leave me all the time
maybe I'm afraid

maybe I'm a man
in the middle of something
do not understand

maybe you're the woman
who could help me understand
right me when I'm wrong

maybe I'm amazed
afraid of way I leave you
help me understand
This was a great idea.....Thanks.

Let's break the circle!
Dance out, dance out in the rain!
(Jimmy Buffett smiles.)
i live this dream, but
still it seems, you're on my mind...
i'm still on your side

can't see the future
but i know it's coming fast...
knee deep in the past

after our false starts,
from the bottom of my heart,
want to get it right

the walls that won't come
down, we'll decorate, climb, or
find some way around

then, i'll tell the wind
and my old friend we're
headed home to you
