Bagpipe Haiku

Several years ago, I was perusing EBay when I came across an old photograph of a Palestinian Bedouin playing a bagpipe. The original photo was taken in 1898. I subsequently purchased a copy of it. It seemed like to art me. Beauty does lie in the eye of the beholder!

Bagpipes have always fascinated me. Although I am not Irish, you will most surely find me at the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. I recall the funeral of the late King Hussein of Jordan. The honor guard also played the pipes. The eerie sound of the bagpipe soothes my soul.

The Sound of Bagpipes,
Chasing away the demons,
Comforting my Soul…
