Why Music? Well, I’ve been going through chemotherapy for the last few months and one of the things I do to survive it, is listen to music. So, to try and inject some fun into my otherwise grey, suspended, limbo-like form of existence, I wrote haiku about the music I enjoy. In February I invited my readers to send in their haiku on the theme of Music.
A huge thank you to everyone who took the time to send in their haiku submissions. I had a wonderful time reading them all and choosing my guest haiku writers for the next few weeks.
It’s a shame that I had to reject quite a number because the haiku either didn’t reflect the 5-7-5 syllabic lines or they were just not based on the advertised theme.
The quality of haiku I received was exceedingly high and it was very difficult to choose which ones to use. If your haiku weren’t accepted this time, please try again in the future. Check out the Submit Page in May for the new theme and deadline. For now, please enjoy some “musical” haiku!
