Hope this finds you well!
This photo was taken backstage at the Shelley Theatre a couple of weeks ago. We’ve really enjoyed our recent gigs and are now working on some recordings for the next few weeks.
In the meantime, if you’re a wordsmith, we’d love you to join in our weekly Haiku challenge.
I love words. I was a poet before I was a songwriter, and a lyricist before a musical composer. During my education of the arts I learned about the Haiku, a Japanese form of poetry where structure and syllable count is heralded above rhyme.
Blossom on the tree
Stillness in the clear blue sky
Peaceful in the sun
The most common form is three lines, the first consisting of five syllables, the second of seven and concluding in five syllables.
I know there are creative people in our midst. Over the next year, I’d like to build a body of poetry that we can all be part of.
It’s a fun challenge! Add yours to the blog on www.diellemusic.com/haiku I’d love to hear them! Each week I’ll choose one from the comments below to read on the Beautiful Monday broadcast.
