Sleeping Haiku

I decided to write haiku today. The day just whizzed by, and it's about time for bed, so I think haiku about sleeping or waking would be appropriate. Since today is Day 6 of National Poetry Month, I'll share 6 haiku.


Bleary-eyed, I wake
Though not of my own accord.
Damn you, alarm clock.

Oh fluffy pillow,
Where I love to rest my head
And sleep the night through.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I don't make the bed.
I just haphazardly throw
The blankets on me.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

I shiver from cold,
So I cuddle my husband
And take all his warmth.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 

I long for my bed,
To stretch out my legs and sleep,
To blissfully dream.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I should clean the house,
But my body says to sleep,
So I nap instead.
