True life in haiku
and balances of phrase out of the blue
and meaning shown to you



As The Ear Has To Travel is a show about songs with great lyrics, this episode is about poets who became musicians, musicians who became poets, musicians who wanted to become writers, musicians who actually consider themselves writers, and everything in between.
