Mental Notes

I'm doing this little experiment of marrying Rococo's Baroque with minimalist Zen-like ideas. The two schools of design are antithesis of each other and conceptually, sits uneasily together. Baroque overwhelms with drama and superfluity where Zen is tranquil and measured.

The idea is to live within a Zen environment with the occasional indulgence in visual drama when you choose to do so. Like a peep show.

------------------------------------------------------------

Attempted some haiku the last few days, even left a haiku comment on drama mama's entry:

Reflective man, I'm.
You see yourself stripping down,
when you look at me.

What I like about this haiku is that the lines are interchangeable and the message remains.

When you look at me,
you see yourself stripping down.
Reflective man, I'm.

When you look at me,
I am a reflective man.
You strip yourself down.

Did a few more today but its hard work trying to keep to the rules of classical haiku. ie. 5 x 7 x 5 syllable, 17 in total.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Something's not right with the political climate. Its simmering down to a pulp after some vicious exchanges. When it gets quiet, a lot of plotting is going on.

If I'm reflective
That would make you as wanton
When you look at me

P/S: Lord I am crap at this. I'll leave the word-smithing to you. :P

When Chelsea triumphs
Wiggle jiggle gyrate hips,
do victory dance.


I like this haiku because the first line can be changed to suit any situation:

Lampard scores a goal
Wiggle jiggle gyrate hips,
do victory dance.

Sheva volleys, goal!
Wiggle jiggle gyrate hips,
do victory dance.

Liverpool fan cry
Wiggle jiggle gyrate hips,
do victory dance.


and so on and so forth.

drama mama,

Undeniably,
I'm easy, cheap and sleazy.
My friends reflect me.

tigga,

You buy victories
for roubles are aplenty.
That's your HISTORY.

lils,

You dont need my notes
to induce your state of mind.
You are beyond help.

islanda,

Not understanding,
is like a broken pencil.
I'm a pointless scribe.
