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.
