JUST ANOTHER HAIKU

(Been playing the tenor ukulele for so long that it is always a pleasant surprise to play the soprano and hear the difference in sound and feel the difference in mood.  Especially nice when snacking on Star Fruit and warming up with Star Anise in hot tea on a cold Florida day)

 

Soprano-sized uke

Voice soars above island skies

Singing with the stars

UKULELE DREAM SONG (in haiku)

(Here is a haiku stack I wrote in April.  I’ve recently attempted to turn it into a song so added chords and it actually seems to work!  Well, that’s a subjective opinion but…)

 

Am/ Let me close my eyes

C/ And lightly float into the

G/ Enigma of dreams

 

Em/ Magic cauldron scents

Am/ Spicing the cooling breezes

E/ Of feverish nights

 

Am/ Share your soul with me

C/ Whisper secret desires

G/ Glide through stormy skies

 

Em/ Let me close my eyes

Am/ Wisps of past memories gone

E/ New links forged for us

 

Am/ Just let me lie back

C/ And lightly float into the

G/ Mystery of love

 

Em/ To recall again

Am/Trembling urgency in the

E7/Enigma of  Am/ dreams
