3 Haiku about 3 Women Who Sing

 

 

“Sarah Vaughan”

 

buttery lows and

silky highs; misty summers

the “Divine One’s” voice

 

 

“Patti Smith”

 

poetry falling

from a voice on the edge of

truth or suicide

 

 

 

“Karen Carpenter”

 

her voice pours like cream

warmth on a rainy day; rich

with her troubled soul

    Very enjoyable read! I don’t listen to a lot of music now…other than some C&W. Women singers I have favored are Patsy Cline, Tanya Tucker, the Judds, and a handful of others.
    Love the “buttery lows and silky highs” in the Sarah Vaughan haiku!

      Thanks a bunch Ron! You know, I almost did one for Patsy. There are some, though very few, from every genre that simply move into the hearts of just about anyone who listens…Patsy was certainly one of those.

      Always good to hear from you…thanks!
