Haiku – Mystical

A land of dragons

One king rides for destiny

His fate sealed in blood


I’ve gotten absolutely hooked on this DragonForce MP3 Album that I just downloaded.



This song especially inspired this Haiku. It has to be one of the greatest Power Ballads I have ever heard.


Haiku – The “Fade to Black” Run

Shadows growing thick

Summer’s light fades into fall

Early dusk tonight


Noticing the evening runs when they go long are starting to get dark by the end of them.  It really is the middle of August.  Fall really isn’t too far away.

On a completely different subject.  I stumbled onto this file on my memory stick.  It was at one time a CD called “Monster Ballads Platinum Edition Disc 2.”  I’m not sure where Disc 1 is or if I even had it.  Anyway, I popped that onto my MP3 Player and it has been in constant rotation on my last couple of runs – yes, I am very, very old.

Here’s the lineup:

1. Every Rose Has It’s Thorn | Poison

2. Don’t Know What You Got Til It’s Gone | Cinderella

3. Fly To The Angels | Slaughter

4. Silent Lucidity | Queensryche

5. Love Song | Tesla

6. Is This Love | Whitesnake

7. Forever | Kiss

8. I’ll Never Let You Go | Steelheart

9. Only Time Will Tell | Nelson

10. Winds of Change | Scorpions

11. Angel Song | Great White

12. I’ll See You In My Dreams | Giant

13. More Than Words | Extreme

14. When I’m With You | Sheriff

15. Ballad Of Jayne | L.A. Guns

16. Honestly | Stryper


This song for some reason is the one I keep going back to.  Don’t ask me why, because I’m not sure I enjoyed it all that much when it was popular.
