Fair Dinkum Haiku 088: Blinding.


Rich lightning flashes.
Ascending daystar dazzles.
Blinding your tired eyes.

Damn EC! Now I'm going to be wondering all night who sang that song, which I loathed with the passion of a thousand fiery suns.

Happy New Year from this tired-eyed River.

"Blinded by the Light" is a song written and originally recorded by Bruce Springsteen, although it is mostly known by its 1977 #1 hit version recorded by Manfred Mann's Earth Band. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blinded_by_the_Light

G' Day MAL: I prefer the version by Manfred Manns Earth Band. Bruce Springsteen doesn't really float my boat at all :-).

Brought to mind 'Blinded by the Light' for me too.
How I love that song. If I could sing, I'd cover it :)
