soothing the spirt (haiku)

Tonight at work I was scheduled for four hours of Live Chat which means I usually put on my noise canceller headset and listen to music to avoid the distraction of counsellors on the phones. What a joy!! They say that taiko drums ward off evil spirits.  I woke up this Monday morning with the “moody” blues, so I have to say there may be a lot of truth to the power of these drums.

sailing past Sado
rocking to the sound
taiko throbbing

taiko throbbing
young and old dance to the beat
free spirits

***
beat of the drums
match the pounding
against his chest

feel the heat
pulsating through her veins
beat of the drums

  1. I love your haiku! The Japanese drum line looks like great exercise and stress relief all rolled into one musical package. Thanks for this. I’m liking the song. I can already feel my focus sharpening.
