Trilogy Haiku for Bruckner

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

Interested in music from 1950s to the present, mostly indie bands and punk, but also avant garde, blues, Motown ... almost but not quite, anything. I'm looking for people to share music, new and old, and looking for new avenues to discovery new music. Come with me.
