Tomorrow is Record Store day, a chance for music fans to collect some exclusive releases and support Independent stores. Me, I’m planning to head to Amoeba in Hollywood. I love that store, and this is as good excuse as any.
For todays post, more three Haiku poems also reading as a larger one. Inspiration, using a word prompt from a song same as on this post. This one takes a line from Love’s “You set the scene” (from their classic “Forever changes” album). Love were an L.A. band who never toured much and never had the sales to match their critical acclaim. The forever changes album is a genuine rock classic. It is one of those albums that get better with repeated listens, even years later after first hearing it. Check out the live version of you set the scene below. The line I used is I’ll face each day with a smile.
disaster struck me
lost my home in a bad storm
many memories gone
Large pile of nothing
fun times shared in this abode
now time to move on
My family is safe
I’ll face each day with a smile
deliver new life
Lexicon word of the day: asperity.
