Keith Urban - Haiku

Updated on September 14, 2015

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

      Yeehaw! I don't know how I missed this gem but I'm glad I finally found it.

      Of course it doesn't hurt that Mr. Urban is extremely easy on the eyes!

      Well done GF. Your inimitable style shows through.

      Voted up and awesome.

      Yummy haiku! I never knew much about Keith Urban (except for a cat and sweater song a friend introduced me to!) until American Idol. He is so cute and has such a sweet accent. Enjoyed your haiku! I love your jamming photo with him, too! :-)

      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.

      Running Deer, I've seen Keith in concert twice. The first time was about 12 years ago. A concert in a parking lot for the grand opening of a Best Buy store. It was nice to actually meet and shake hands with KU.

      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!:)

      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.
