Time for some more nonsensical poems! 😛
I’ve done several versions of these musical haikus now, where I take lyrics from some of my favourite songs that fit 5- and 7-syllable phrases and work them into poems. And now we’re on round 6!
Check out this week’s poems below and let me know what you think!

A big thanks to the author for an e-ARC of this one to review! Much of the main character’s journey in the book is inspired by musicians, his brother and John Coltrane, so today’s review is a perfect tie-in for Music Monday!
On the Way to Birdland comes out tomorrow – check out the link above to pre-order!
Welcome to the fourth instalment of my musical haikus!
With this feature, I take 5- and 7- syllable phrases from songs I’m currently listening to and mix and match them to create new haikus! For more of my poems, check out the haiku tag.
Read on for the poems I created this week and links to the songs I pulled from!
