Siouxsie and the Banshees: A Haiku

I hear Siouxsie Sioux
Burning ash and destruction
Cities in the dust

The music of the 80s speaks to me. So many memories, pain and joy, anguish and exaltation.

LISTENING To Music 

As youth I chose
To deeply explore music
Each word critical 

Music is critical to me. For my teenage years, I focused my study there. Well, as best as I could focus at that age. Music means so very much to me. Understanding the way lyrics, melody and harmony intersect for the good of the story carried great value. 

I seek to recapture that. Spent some time this morning enjoying it again. Until life’s demands intruded. Soon, I’ll return. These delights critical to my soul.
