Writing to Music: Senryu Trilogy

I’ve been requested to write a trilogy to the music of Eric Satie…Les Trois Gymnopédie…in Haiku (but I’ve chosen Senryu) by Barb Taub.   How could I refuse a request like this, and from one of my first and most faithful blogging friend!

The difference between Haiku and Senryu, is basically focus.  Here I’m focusing on a day in a couple’s life (in first person point of view).  So, not strictly Haiku which would be a more specific description of nature.

For those who may not know the piece or would like to listen to it while they read…just click the link to Les Trois Gymnopédie here.

Gymnopédie N° 1

first light foreshadows
languid summer day, with you
dawn is our promise

Gymnopédie N° 2

our sun shines brightly
Sarca river flows serenely
we laugh as ducks dive

Gymnopédie N°3

sailing on the lake
strong wind fills our sails, we race
wind’s gift: our freedom

Have a great Sunday Barb, I hope you like them, and a great day to everyone else too!
