    Default Haiku for the Muses

    It looks like everyone's Muses are gone for vacation somewhere far, including mine :)
    The Muses tend to avoid satisfied tummies and contented hearts, their sweet embrace always surrounding those in pain or need. Ahhh, if it weren't for the Muses...

    So I pulled this old one from the files, in the hope that a spark may shine close to the keyboard again :cool:

    Lovely! How did you create the tree effect, Fabs? Was it with liquify or a blur filter? This is very surreal!

    As soon as I read the Haiku it reminded me of one of my new favorite songs, "How He Loves Us" by The David Crowder Band. Part of the lyrics are "He loves like a hurricane, I am the tree, bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy..." You've brought that song to life! ;)

    Thanks, Jules, I can't remember for sure, it's been very long since, but most probably a soft pass of Flaming Pear's Swerve.

    Just beautiful. Very evocative.

    Incredible how much can be conveyed in so few words, Fabs.

    See you soon :)

    Lovely image and well conveyed. I am surprised that none of the moderators actually picked up that your syllables are 5,8,5 not 5,7,5? :)

    We did notice the number of syllables but, frankly, who cares?

    Beauty is beauty.

    Also - and I looked this up - a Haiku doesn't HAVE to be 5/7/5 - that's just the most acceptable form as the flow of words sets a nice tempo. She could always go with "the old tree bends slightly" if she wanted to get technical but who cares...it's lovely!

    I feel that when rules take away from the art they need to be broken. :)

    Fair enough. I am sure if it were mine there would have been issues reading or getting the "stanzas"....:eek:

    Are you suggesting I'm getting "special" treatment?
    It's usually the other way around, I'm expected to produce miracles ;)

    There's an old saying that goes well with this comment...

    Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?
