Storm Haiku

As many of our fans know, we write the odd bit of poetry when we’re not singing close harmony tunes.  Here’s a haiku from Venus member Patti Gaston (pictured here, on the right; that’s Dolores on the left), in honor of the recent storm and massive power loss in our Washington, D.C. area:

 

Felled by Derecho

Where’s the power company?

Am I their last house?

But Venus sings on

We can rehearse in the dark

Our songs needs no light
