My friend Michael G. Smith and I have been working on collaborative haiku sequences for almost two years. At his suggestion, we used Handel’s “Water Music” as a starting point. We’re also working on a “Day in the Life” sequence–a very different musical inspiration.
The entire sequence is now published at:
Here is the start:
blood in the veins
ordered garden beds
a baroque score
torn in spring wind
tasting the last
of last years’ dried apples
the tree blooms
over my lettuce planting hopes
notes pour allegro
a slow moment observed, lilacs opening without a minute hand
edging off the eave, a raindrop takes its chance
The first one is Michael’s, alternating with mine. As a reader, do you like suck links attributed, or not?
