haiku - sleep

3am -
blackbird song
wakes me


sleep and insomnia for Mad Kane's Haiku prompt

You can read a senryu I wrote a while ago about insomnia over on Over Forty Shades here.

Nice one. Birds are the only ones I forgive for waking me from sleep. There's a lot of it about at the moment - an exciting and busy time for many of them!

Nice, the other insomnia entry was good too! We are constantly dancing with not sleeping. Lately we both sleep better if I sleep with rabbits!

ah, but that's a nice way to be awakened :)

Insomnia not a problem, happily, but struggling with a midsummer poem about the late singing mistle thrush...

I've ordered the Wendy Nyemeyer 'Unleash the poem' on your recommendation. It may arrive tomorrow...

You’re lucky. I was woken around five this morning by the incessant, ugly chatter of magpies. I don’t know what had upset them – maybe there was a cat or some other predator in the vicinity of a nest – but what a racket they made, and it went on and on and on …

I connect with this poem. Sleep can be a very fragile thing.
