Fish in Haiku

Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:54 pm

OK - a little bit of Fish-related fun here and a bit of an experiment...

The challenge: to post a Haiku summarising a Fish song in album/track order starting with Script...

Anyone can play, once you've posted, let another member post the next song at least just to keep things fresh. Also, let the next participant know what the song is (just in case). Time to flex those creative muscles and Have Fun!

Punch & Judy:

Taken for granted
Meaningful words, mellowed by time*
Storm signals the end

Jigsaw:

Friends connected as one
Separated then collide
Friendship fragments

A perfect 17 syllables! Also note the double-meaning on the last line. ;)

Jealousy. Turmoil.
Relationship turned sour now.
Time to move onwards...

Any good? She Chameleon next.

Memories, seared pain
Despair in a world gone mad
Yearning to belong

PS: Now, about that question "Where are the prophets?" :lol: . See, I was trying to avoid Fugazi precisely because of this temptation....

He awakens the lost child,
Safety is not real.
