For the love of haiku – Nidhöggr and its music

The current haiku challenge on the Carpe Diem blog is a really different one this time; a piece of music called Nidhöggr. I enjoyed the music, but found using it as a haiku prompt quite difficult.

As far as I can find out, the Nidhöggr is some kind of dragon, popular in Scandinavian mythology.

The voices of rhythm
and melody, echo
the dragon’s heartbeat.
