Melody



guitar strings
missing in the street,
broken note   

~0~0

piano keys
untuned, grating nails,
empty room

~0~0

child's laughter,
concert melody,
sounds of joy


Haiku Heights:   Melody

  5. I could feel lots of movements and laughter in your haiku. Kids compounded the joy. Great take, Grace!

  9. Even one broken note is better than no note at all. When the melody stops, God weeps.

  10. I hope the writing of the first two excellent haiku lightened a tough day. Certainly seems so as the third is music itself.

  12. Awesome! I knew an elderly couple that moved from a quite two story home to a single story home across the street from an elementary school playground. In the warmer weather they would open the windows to fill the house with the sound of children. They said it helped keep them young and alive.
