Made to enrich lives,
A harmony of both spheres
pure delight to ears.

Evoke emotions---
an art form as old as time,
---through sound and silence.

L♥vely! Basically describes music! Music is such a terribly hard thing to write about. You, my dear, have acomplished the daunting task. My only suggestion is using two -- instead of three --- it works better with word.

I love these haikus.  I can connect to them very well, but I think the first and second haikus need to be transitioned into smoother.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

I thought on this for like seven minutes. Not because I didn't get it of course, I mean at first I was thinking of some much more than the musical and the lyrical with the first Haiku I mean and then when I read the second Haiku, it  gave the poem such a new feel. The last line is the one most EPIC-ly executed and the one I thought on most as well. Through sound and silence. I'll probably remember this forever. Wow such brilliance in ONE line. I am in love. Sound and silence. The correct arrangement of groups of each ccreates something entirely dependent upon composer. Could be pleasant or harsh. the thing is that the basic, the bare, the crux is THIS! Hahah sorry for the over-capitalization. I am after all over-excited.

Very interesting--- i never thought of the whole "spheres" and "ears" rhyme. I just wrote it without paying attention I guess. However I do see your point about the smoother transition. Maybe I could have switched the haiku or added another. But thanks for reading--it feels good to have fresh feedback!

This is really good, i like the second haiku more than the first. Also, since i am giving feedback, the rhyming in the first haiku seemed a bit forced s"spheres" and "ears" i felt that mane that could have been a bit smoother and the transition from the first haiku to the second could also have been a bit smoother. But all in all, I got your message and enjoyed this haiku. Have a nice day and keep rockin

You captured the essence and purpose of music into a concise and lyrical and profound poem. Well executed. I'm sure every musician would agree with the message of this poem. What would  we do without music?

*facedesk* I really just did that. I really just wrote "seemless" instead of "seamless." Sorry. :|

Simple but profound, and the haiku form is seemless, which is a certain sign of mastery. 5 stars for you ~

This definatly wasn't one of those poems that you can just read once and understand completely. I had to read this several times to get part of the meaning (I AM blonde after all :P). I loved this poem and I hope you keep writing. :)
