Keith Urban - Haiku

Tribute to Keith Urban

Some people might consider me a bit obsessed with Keith Urban. But, I'm not. At least I don't think I am.

I appreciate his music, his talent and his kind nature. Keith Urban gives so much of himself to his fans and for that I am grateful. His music has helped me through some rough times in my life.

There have been moments when I was so blue that I thought I'd never be able to sing along to another song, yet I found myself singing to Keith's music. At that time I feel all is well with my world which makes me feel darn good!

Music feeds my soul. It takes me to another realm and I welcome the escape. Even though the escape is temporary, music gives me the strength to go on.

Keith Urban's music, along with the musical talents of many musicians is a craft. Their music is a gift to the fans. I intend to let these artists now that they are making a difference in someone else's life.

So in a nutshell...this haiku is a Thank You to Keith Urban. See, I told you I wasn't obsessed! Or am I? :)

A three part haiku in honor of Keith Urban's country tunes...


Eclectic rhythms
The thunder from down under
Is quite the wonder

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stunning guitar riffs
Crescendos are special gifts
We all yell Yeehaw

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sultry melodies
Strumming beats make our hearts speed
Country music star

Now you have to understand that this is just a wild, wild guess, Linda, but I do believe you are a Keith Urban FAN of the highest order! Right? Right? You do realize though that Nicole has first dibs.

Your haiku I like-o.


Sunshine625 profile image

Sunshine625 4 years ago from Orlando, FL Author

Hi drbj...You are correct I am a major Keith Urban fan, but I haven't earned the highest order title. There are many, many others who earn that title daily with their support and love for KU. I salute them.

Nicole is a lucky lady. As is Keith. Thanks for your comment!:)

Ky4KU, I'm so glad you enjoyed this haiku. I'm also happy you read his GQ article. A friend of mine from Australia sent me the link and he knew I would enjoy it.

I never thought I would ever see the words "We all yell Yeehaw" in Haiku format before! That, alone, I am impressed with 'cos I was hoping to be the first to do this. Alas, you beat me to it, yeeeeehaaaawe! I have really enjoyed the Haiku material and am listening to the vid right now. Thanks for sharing!

I hope he reads this and smiles because I know all this AI drama has to be grating on him. It's grating on me and I don't even like the show. I think he sold himself short going on there- to me he's an awesome talent and deserves all the respect and adulation possible.
