Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
A little while ago one of our family members gave me an idea for a new feature in which the leading role is for "Musical Memories" and I think I have a nice new creation for you all. Today I will introduce to you an all new feature and I have called it "Carpe Diem, Remember This Music?" And as the title already said this new feature is all about memories of music. I think every one has memories in which music plays a role. For example: My wife and I married on a song by Engelbert Humperdinck and I remember the first CD which I bought when the CD-player was introduced. That CD was by Leonard Cohen. Recently I saw a commercial for our Dutch National Railway Company in which a song by Leonard Cohen was used.
That commercial 'triggered' my memory and I love to share that song "Take This Waltz" here with you all.
I hope you did enjoy this wonderful song. I was inspired to write this haiku after listening again to this nice song by Leonard Cohen:
the last waltz -
I saw her again after a while
my first love
But that's not all about this new feature .... The goal is to write a four (4) stanza renga inspired on the song you have chosen yourself. You don't need to use this song I shared ... you can take your own song which brings sweet (or sad) memories to you to write that four stanza renga .... So I have to change my haiku above into a four stanza renga ... let me try ...
