haiku - sleep

sleep soundly -
woken gently by birds
singing dawn chorus.

*******************

all day
walking along the river -
good night's sleep.


For photos, haiku and a description of the walk mentioned in haiku 2, please read

Your blog has gone green! Two very good sleeping poems. The second one reminds me of my grandsons at day's end.

"Singing dawn chorus" was a very lovely line and what a terrific way to sleep deep.

I really feel the second one. Fresh air and the great outdoors always inspire good sleep.

I can't believe it has been so long that I missed the change in your blog design. I like it. The photos of the walk are beautiful. I would sleep easily after that.

I especially love your second poem. It makes me think of my children and myself. A hard day's "work" -- whatever it is -- makes for good sleep.

i love to be 'woken gently by birds / singing dawn chorus' - lovely haiku! your walk along the (brilliantly named!) River Almond sounded fantastic too.

I love these! They say so much, so simply. I have been covering my head with my pillow due to the loud bird song in the morning...maybe I should get up and meditate instead ;-)

Juliet,
Refreshing outdoor exercise along a scenic byway to bring pleasant exhaustion to the bed and awakening to the natural music of the birds. It really doesn't get more perfect. ;-)

I especially liked being woken gently by birds singing at dawn. I'm usually up around dawn and look forward to such a chorus.

I prefer essay writing help for writing an explanatory essay, but tour haiku is so exciting! Mane thanks.
