Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

one hour till dawn
nothing to do
but write haiku

I left this as a comment at Polona's blog on March 31. Visiting R K Singh's blog, I found that he had posted one on a similar theme, so I left this at his blog, too.

In that time... between a dream and reality... often come the finer thoughts.

Thanks, polona, for the fine ku and the good thoughts. The hour before dawn, M, is the best thing about insomnia.

I like this one - some of the most enjoyable mornings are those where I spend some time thinking of a haiku before Ive even opened my eyes. Nice one, Bill

a shortening night -

just a two-liner?
