fragments of a prince...





thieves in the temple
struck down by
his diamond cane


cinnamon girl and
purple rain
touched a tragic prince


he sought his old soul
seeking gold
like a poor man lost



Poetry form: lune


NOTE
 I have always been fascinated how Prince kept his faith intact
and managed to sing from a wild, even raunchy spirit.
Only in Purple Rain and Cinnamon Girl could I find a fusion of the two.
And then, there is the secret line in Thieves in the Temple where Prince mentions seeking the soul...

I like how you've sieved through his texts for these gems... wonderful

I think you have come close to an understanding of Prince's mystique, particularly in the final stanza.

I love the imagery, the sparkles, the pictures your haiku sing into my head.

Lovely tribute.

Great tribute..You chose his own music to craft this. Your ending captured his story. He left us with a lot, but I wonder how much it cost his spirit to produce it.

You dug deep for this ... very nice.
