Haiku Music

Updated on April 29, 2017

magic and warm tears

beyond and full of wonder

that’s music for you

after all these years

original voodoo child

jimi is unique

ice cold biting steel

bending on the fourteenth fret

emotion on fire

ralph on the piano

cause if it aint got that swing

it don’t mean a thing

1959


it was kind of blue

miles of haunting melodies

still rings true today

i’m playing the blues

touching deep that special place

the depths of my soul

it touched me deeply

masekela on his horn

african music

can you sing haiku

i’ll just put this to music

and then i will know

      Okay I trust you Frieda, Russ I was just joking, I'd leave both the haiku and the singing to you! LOL :D

      Russ is a wonderful singer and he plays like you wouldn't believe! He could beat you hands down, Cris. I think that's a fantastic idea Russ! Go for it!

      I think I'd leave the haiku writing to you! But as for singing... LOL :D

      Thanks Frieda, hate to admit but I hadn't tried until inspired by your comment. It is fun! I've just set meself a challenge - to write a song with each verse in haiku format.
