Haiku Tuesday: Tilting Wind Turbines

To challenge the wind
Believe you are first master
Of your broken heart

Dulcinea’s eyes
Gaze sweet upon my dour face
Her tears like crystal

The swoosh of my blade
Rends the clouds my enemies
They stack against me

Leap Rocinante
O’r the sun the liquid moon
Seek impossibly

To all I survey
Let them know I persevered
Despite my failures

ChatGPT: Write a moody poem about the moors of Scotland

Can you write a moody poem about the moors of Scotland.
Include the baying of hounds, mists, moon light and the forlorn love of a maiden.

Mists cling to the moors of Scotland,
Eerie silence save the baying hounds.
Moonlight filters through the fog,
A spectral scene of ghostly mounds.

The maiden wanders, love forlorn,
Her heart aching with each step.
She searches for her lost love,
In this land of mist and kept.

The hounds’ howls echo in the night,
A symphony of sorrow and pain.
But the maiden trudges on,
Through the moorland’s endless reign.

For in this land of mist and moon,
Her love is all she needs.
Though the moors may be dreary,
Her heart forever heeds.

So let the hounds bay on,
And the mist forever swirl.
For the maiden’s love will guide her,
Through the moors of Scotland, a pearl.

Can you try that again but in the style of Robert Service?

The mist on the moors of Scotland,
Is a ghostly, eerie veil,
The baying of hounds a haunting tune,
That echoes through the gale.

The maiden roams the moorlands,
With love forlorn and true,
She searches for her heart’s desire,
In this land so wild and blue.

The moon shines bright on heather,
A spectral light so fair,
But the maiden’s love is all she needs,
To guide her through the glare.

The hounds they bay, a mournful sound,
A symphony of woe,
But the maiden trudges on and on,
Through the mist and misty snow.

For in this land of mist and moon,
Her love is all she needs,
Though the moors may be dreary,
Her heart forever heeds.

So let the hounds bay on,
And the mist forever swirl,
For the maiden’s love will guide her,
Through the moors of Scotland, a pearl.

ChatGPT: Can you write me a song about floating down a river?

Verse 1:
I grab my paddle and hop in my canoe
The river’s flowing, it’s calling my name
The sun’s shining, the birds are singing too
I’m feeling free, like I’m in a dream

Chorus:
Floating down the river, it’s a peaceful ride
The water’s calm, the breeze is light
I’m taking in the sights, just letting my mind glide
Floating down the river, everything’s just right

Verse 2:
I pass by the trees and the bushes so green
The fish are jumping, it’s such a sight to see
I close my eyes and breathe in the air so clean
This moment is perfection, it’s where I wanna be

Chorus:
Floating down the river, it’s a peaceful ride
The water’s calm, the breeze is light
I’m taking in the sights, just letting my mind glide
Floating down the river, everything’s just right

Bridge:
I don’t know where the river will take me
But I’m not in a hurry, I’m just letting it be
I’ll soak in the beauty, and the tranquility
Floating down the river, it’s where I want to be

Chorus:
Floating down the river, it’s a peaceful ride
The water’s calm, the breeze is light
I’m taking in the sights, just letting my mind glide
Floating down the river, everything’s just right

Outro:
So come and join me, let’s float down the river
Leave your worries behind and let’s just quiver
With the beauty of nature and the peace it delivers
Floating down the river, it’s where we want to be.

Haiku Tuesday: Depressionist art

Shadows meander
peacefully amongst the pines,
silent wolves keep still.

My friend Mike told me about Ellen Dittebrandt who was an impressionist artist living in Oregon who died in a car accident in 2014. This image is generated by Stable Diffusion and looks nothing like her art but, her name was used in the prompt. Clearly AI art-gen still has a ways to go.

Solitude never
feels so all alone, if you
share it with nature.

This image came from a simpler prompt which merely named the previously named artist. This engine, Stable Diffusion, although trained on 5.6 billion images gleaned from the internet, fails to appreciate the true nature of Dittebrandt’s work.

Styx allows passage
to any who pay the price,
annihilation.

This was created using Dall-e2. Hades sailing the river styx in the style of raphael.

I recommend Ellen Dittebrandt’s artwork, it’s rather pleasing.
