A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
The festive cheer is abound in many parts of the world right now. One thing that adds into the warmth of celebration and togetherness is the music that we come to enjoy in this season. For some, the Christmas carols are the need of the time, to hum along to those popular verses. For others, it is the time to listen to some jazz and enjoy conversations with family and friends. For some like me, we enjoy many genres at the same time.
In winters, I particularly enjoy the rustic voice of some jazz singers, while also liking how it is to sway along to the flow of some classic and soft rock. It is quite a wonderful thing if I have a cup of hot tea, while working on a crossword, as some instrumental serenades through the speakers.
As I am writing this prompt early in the morning, I am listening to Joe Cocker. He passed away on 22 December. His soulful voice is soothing, as the fog hides everything from my eyes outside.
vanished from sight –
neighborhood under the spell
of mystic fog
sweet voice serenades
as the chill spreads through the skin –
I exhale white smoke
So, this week, I would like you to turn the sound up, enjoy your holiday/season song, and write a haiku or tanka or both, to share how you are feeling as you do this.
What to do next?
1. Publish a post with your haiku or tanka if you have a blog. If you haven’t got a blog, you can share them in the comments down below. In case you have published a post, you can submit its link in the linking widget.
2. After you have made the post, take some of your time and visit the links of other participants. This is how we learn and improvise. Return again at the end of the week if you have made your post during the weekdays because there would be new links to visit, which would help us all to make connections and develop the feeling of community and togetherness in our adventure every week. Even if you can’t take out the time to visit all the links, then visit at least the link shared before or after you and offer your feedback and develop comradeship with that person.
You can also add the following tags to your post: HeedingHaikuWithHA and MindLoveMisery’sMenagerie.
