3 x Haikus wrote in Homage to Scott Walker
smiling through the smoke
Those last moments descended
On our window pane.
Falling through the night
your teardrops fall through the sky
watching the moonlight.
Voicing truths inside
the world's coffin gets tighter
closer to the end.
(Noel Scott Engel (January 9, 1943 – March 22, 2019) better known by his stage name Scott Walker, was an American-British singer-songwriter and record producer who resided in England. Walker was known for his emotive voice and his unorthodox stylistic path which took him from being a teen pop icon in the 1960s to an avant-garde musician in the 21st century)

Hi John. Glad you like this. I had read somewhere of the interest in Julius Evola by Scott. Somebody I need to re-read a bit off. Cheers m8.

I know he was interested in the counter-Modern Traditionalist perspectives of Julius Evola. Very interesting man and good Haikus too.

Me too Steven.. I can see why he shocked people a bit back with of the lyrics to 'Next' and 'Jackie' for example too.

I loved his Jacques Brel renditions.

Thanks guys.. Just a little homage to excluding possibly Mark Hollis (Talk Talk) and Paul Buchanan (The Blue Nile) - my favourite male vocalist.
