  4. Do you compose your poetry to music?
    I do. I know this feeling. :)

    1. I do go "into" music to relax but I actually write "on the fly". I mean I get the prompt, start a new post, and wait for it to flow. It comes from another place. I don't know how to explain it. I know when I "try", I'm not doing it right. I'm an integrated multiple who had a part who loved to write. I'm one now but it still feels like the writing comes from an "other". Might be inner wisdom at work. Do you know about inner wisdom (Jung). I know mine. All people have it. He...she...it. However it manifests. Mine is a writer. I have had music lyrics inspire haiku though.

    2. Does your inner wisdom have a name? (You don't have to reveal it. I'm just wondering...)

    3. Many great artists acknowledge that their art is not from them but rather flows through them via "muse" or "divine creativity" or "god" or "other" or whatever they chose to label it. :)

      I don't know about Jungian wisdom. I don't know much about Jung or Freude for that matter but I do know about finding inspiration from music lyrics, photos, pretty lines found in novels, whatever, wherever. Inspiration is everywhere.

  6. I can really relate to this Grace.

    Do you like a song first for it's lyrics or its music?

    I nearly always find the music grabs me first. I've sometimes been quite shocked to find out what the lyrics actually are to songs I've listened to many times.

    1. I might start out captivated by the words but really hate the music. I have aversion to many musical sounds. My Brian says my whole music collection sounds the same. Lol. We'll just say its predominantly mellow. If I loved lyrics but not music, I did Polyvore art for it and saved the lyrics with it. Am sometimes horrified to see lyrics now that we can look up lyrics on Internet. Jazz and heavy metal actually trigger my PTSD. I know, I'm weird. Cool question, JRB!

  7. I have answered your question on the interchange of the first and third line of a haiku on Carpe Diem. But I will answer it here again. You are right, there's a haiku rule which says that the first and third line can be inter changed. That's correct however in the Western haiku that interchange isn't always possible. Basho once said: "learn the rules and forget them immediately", but it's always worth a try to write a haiku with interchanging first and third line. By the way ... this is really a nice haiku you have shared here.

    1. Thank you for clarifying that, Kristjaan. It's what I grabbed onto to help me do it right but now understand there's another way. This is a lovely journey I'm on and so glad to have been led to you by Björn.

  8. reminded me of how my sister cajoled me into going to the opera...once there, I closed my eyes and was transported...we went again and again..

    1. Sometimes I'm amazed at what gets such interesting conversation going. The swing one has a fun dialog on it too. Yes, it is wonderful!
