Q: Are these songs also haiku?

A: Some have haiku structure of three line verses, like Jojo and Martha, snow on the sill and Leftover Man. Others are mini-stories with a haiku influence.

Stringing together haiku so that they make a song is tricky because the story line has to jump from one short story to the next.

There are many different approaches in these songs. I'm an experimenter. I'm after a compelling story.
