borrowed words

The  NaHaiWriMo prompt for today is to make a haiku out of “borrowed” or “found” words. I turned to songs. All the words were taken verbatim from the respective songs credited, but sometimes I justaposed two different lines.

quiet silent seconds
the half light
the moon left

from “Come Down in Time”, by Elton John & Bernie Taupin

moons and Junes…
the dizzy dancing
way you feel

from “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell

new horizon…
the floating motion
of a distant pair of wings

from “Elusive Butterfly” by Bob Lind

whispering pines
of the tide

from “Whispering Pines” by Richard Manuel & Robbie Robertson (The Band)

you lose you win
the sound of sunshine
coming down

from “The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearhead
