M Haiku #atozchallenge


Pitch, rhythm, and tone—

together they have charms to

soothe a savage breast

Are we feeling cultured today? This haiku refers to a word that starts with M that’s something cultured people pay attention to. It also refers to the famous first line of a play by William Congreve – and yes, I quoted it correctly!

Today’s entry in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

  1. I had Music as well, but I didn’t think it was right because of “they” in the second line, music being singular. But now I get it. They refers to pitch, rhythm and tone.

    I’m gonna miss these when April ends, Celia. Don’t know what you’re going to be able to do to keep the fun going!
