Keith Urban - Haiku

Tribute to Keith Urban

Some people might consider me a bit obsessed with Keith Urban. But, I'm not. At least I don't think I am.

I appreciate his music, his talent and his kind nature. Keith Urban gives so much of himself to his fans and for that I am grateful. His music has helped me through some rough times in my life.

There have been moments when I was so blue that I thought I'd never be able to sing along to another song, yet I found myself singing to Keith's music. At that time I feel all is well with my world which makes me feel darn good!

Music feeds my soul. It takes me to another realm and I welcome the escape. Even though the escape is temporary, music gives me the strength to go on.

Keith Urban's music, along with the musical talents of many musicians is a craft. Their music is a gift to the fans. I intend to let these artists now that they are making a difference in someone else's life.

So in a nutshell...this haiku is a Thank You to Keith Urban. See, I told you I wasn't obsessed! Or am I? :)

A three part haiku in honor of Keith Urban's country tunes...

Eclectic rhythms
The thunder from down under
Is quite the wonder


Stunning guitar riffs
Crescendos are special gifts
We all yell Yeehaw


Sultry melodies
Strumming beats make our hearts speed
Country music star

Yeehaw, indeed! Thanks Y'all for stopping by and sharing some love with Sunshine and KU! :)

Mary Craig from New York on March 08, 2015:

Yeehaw! I don't know how I missed this gem but I'm glad I finally found it.

Of course it doesn't hurt that Mr. Urban is extremely easy on the eyes!

Well done GF. Your inimitable style shows through.

Voted up and awesome.

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on March 08, 2015:

Enjoyed the Haikus and the videos. Keith would love the poetry, I'll bet.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on March 08, 2015:

Good hub as a tribute to Keith, Sunshine...nice haiku too. Love his talent. Voted up.

Audrey Howitt from California on March 07, 2015:

What a cutie he is! Sigh! Loved the picture of the two of you together!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on August 24, 2013:

Nell...You have One Direction and The Wanted! :)

VIcki...I bet you are looking forward to American Idol since Keith Urban will be a judge again this season! :)

Victoria Lynn from Arkansas, USA on March 22, 2013:

Yummy haiku! I never knew much about Keith Urban (except for a cat and sweater song a friend introduced me to!) until American Idol. He is so cute and has such a sweet accent. Enjoyed your haiku! I love your jamming photo with him, too! :-)

Nell Rose from England on February 13, 2013:

The talent over there is so much better than the catterwalling we have over here on tv! lol!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 13, 2013:

I watched American Idol for a total of one hour this season. I couldn't watch anymore. Keith Urban is just too darn good for that show. I'm glad you are enjoying AI Nell.

Nell Rose from England on February 13, 2013:

Been watching him on American Idol! Um he is kinda yum! lol!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on November 13, 2012:

Alecia, Suzette, Michelle and Vinaya ... Thank you for stopping by to visit with Keith Urban and sharing your thoughts of KU! :)

Vinaya Ghimire from Nepal on October 13, 2012:

Sunshine, I loved the first one very much basically the uniform rhythm.


Michelle Liew from Singapore on October 13, 2012:

Yee Haw! You've successfully used lovely poetic images to describe a wonderful music icon. KU rocks and so does this haiku!! Sharing and tweeting!

Suzette Walker from Taos, NM on October 03, 2012:

I love Keith Urban and the haikus are great! Love the photo of you and Keith - I'm sure you are on a first name basis with him. LOL Giving Nicole a little competition, I see? Thanks for an entertaining hub and on a subject matter I love and love to look!

Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on October 03, 2012:

I hope he reads this and smiles because I know all this AI drama has to be grating on him. It's grating on me and I don't even like the show. I think he sold himself short going on there- to me he's an awesome talent and deserves all the respect and adulation possible.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on October 03, 2012:

LOL RC! Thunder from down under - Australia! :)

Yeehaw! I do wonder about your double meaning of the thunder from down below, though! : ) Linda.... I didn't expect that from you! lol Good haiku!

I never thought I would ever see the words "We all yell Yeehaw" in Haiku format before! That, alone, I am impressed with 'cos I was hoping to be the first to do this. Alas, you beat me to it, yeeeeehaaaawe! I have really enjoyed the Haiku material and am listening to the vid right now. Thanks for sharing!

Running Deer, I've seen Keith in concert twice. The first time was about 12 years ago. A concert in a parking lot for the grand opening of a Best Buy store. It was nice to actually meet and shake hands with KU.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on August 02, 2012:

Cogerson, I think I might also be a Keith Urban fan! Great minds thinking alike :)
