The Seattle Symphony played Anton Bruckner’s Fifth Symphony.  I had previously been instructed to write haiku.  The two came together.  (Previously published with the Live Music Project, I’ll share it here.)


Trilogy Haiku for Bruckner
Thank You, Seattle Symphony!

Drums, little thunder
Roll, Roar atop sixty strings
Oboe gets a turn

Walking bass, slow plod
Careful, Jaws is afoot?  No!
A Swordfish Trombone

Tuba, Tuba Man
Big sounds, rich thuds aplenty
Heavy!  Put that down
