Morning sun enters
softly insisting I wake;
“Nightmare’s over—breathe.”

#5 for National Poetry Month Today’s poem, a Haiku, to share in the magic of National Poetry Month. Always a silver lining, bad dreams are yet another reason to appreciate waking up. I’ll have to see about catching up before I get too far behind.

  1. I get the feeling that this was derived from a jolting dream; a nightmare. I liked this; involving yet in haiku form which had to have made it more difficult. Good job!

  2. Hi, Tre. It was longer. Deciding on a Haiku form was an intriguing challenge. I’m glad you liked it. Thanks for visiting and sharing.
