soft as cashmere

Folk music of Kashmir, India featured at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai


 

hypnotizing voice

exotic music sways heart

sung by graceful hands

 

 

who has ears to hear…

 

Hell may

assault ears with

unearthly shrieks of

self-condemned rebels

tortured by vicious demons,

an infernal crackling

of eternal fire,

but worse yet

will be the

echoing miseries of sin,

utter absence of love,

awful silence of God.

no news is good news?

“All things are wearisome, more than one can say.  The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing.  What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again, there is nothing new under the sun.”  (Ecclesiastes 1:8) 

from

national newscasters

political pundits

television talking heads

to

local celebrities

small town coffee shops

gossip grapevines;

it’s

shocking indecency

another person’s tragedy

driveling trivia comedy

that

we know sells,  as “news”–

whatever our itching ears want to hear.
