a mindful gathering

Postby bodhi » Mon Jan 19, 2004 8:17 pm

nice to peruse poems and lyics, i haven't published mine for a couple decades, but hope to pull some together this decade ... have been chiefly into haiku, as unit and as discipline ... http://awakening.to/haiku.html, for more on this vector.

i almost included some leonard cohen lyrics in a gathering of mindful poetry i did, but after 5 years of work, his didn't make the cut for some reason or other. (i can't really remember. maybe it was 'cos of the cost, or 'cos there were already 125 contributors many lesser-known; something.) i mention 'cos i posted a lot more stuff on the book's website, for free, including lyrics ('tho some of those links need updating)

http://word.to/whatweb.html (whatweb!?)

... of possible interest to the general leonardcohenfora


well, ok, here's a "leonard cohen type haiku," of sorts .... (ready?) ......

THIS IS YOUR LOVER
PLEASE LISTEN CAREFULLY 'COS
THE MENU HAS CHANGED

:lol: ~ I love THAT! Soooo funny.......soooo true! What a contemporary way of expressing it :D ! I guess you could say it was Haiku in the sense of being 'nature related'......some one's nature, shall we say 'fickle' :wink: ? You're not giving Leonard the rap, though, are you? After all, he's come so far for beauty.....

Two words: Just Great :shock:

I'm amazed how you can put so much in only three lines
I'm not good at poem-theory but I see when something strikes a chord in me and this does.

Got to run, I'll look at your website later :P

LOL ~ and I meant rap as in "bad rap" :lol: ....and WoW, "senryu" ~ had no idea there was a specific form devoted to human nature. Thanks for letting me know that :D !

Hi Bodhi!


I wish I could write like that. Don't be shy about posting some more ---Leonard inspired or not.

Were you able to get anything with the first link, Babz? All I got was an Error page. I really like the home-page picture on the second one.
