I am once,
sprouted from this air,
that soil, growing.

  1. When I heard this it made me remember similary artist from Greenland singing in his native tongue – fantastic music and words you have no idea what they are singing about, but it does not matter there is a nerve, a feeling that can be understood and there your poem nicely fit.

  2. Ashi – I agree that vocals can add much to a song, beyond what the words actually mean. In fact, I sometimes prefer songs in a language I do not understand.

    I am playing with the pairing of haiku and music video to see what they can bring to each other. I enjoyed this one; I’m glad you did as well.
