The wind whispers sweet nothings
As I lay dreaming...

Not a theme about which YOU know much, eh? :) I can tell my kind. Just because I work to "do days", doesn't mean it's natural or even preferred, at all.muted shades glistensound and shape blurred, cool fallslife for some starts - endsto see in the nightis to see into the souldarkness is not evila cat's eye, opensense of being unseen, yum! -cloaked in freedomFeeling better on this end, will add another poem when I am up.
Doomster, I like the day and night. If I could get by with just 5 hours of sleep I would. Actually .... I do get by with only that much sleep a lot of times. Not good for me though.I like your nighttime offerings,
I am up! But I don't quite yet have new poems. I have to get a shower and head to town, it snuck up on me. Go figure. So I didn't get to a new poem in time.
Good afternoon Foam,Well done on your win. Hope your feeling better.One to start.High seas moonless nightBioluminescent wakeMarks path less traveled
Karl, I'd love to see that one of these days!
A beautiful and visual poem dear Foamy.I hope you are feeling much better?xoxoxo ♡
Hi Foam, Congrats. While I can't compete to host, I can droop in to play for fun, now that I have my power back. I did not expect to he home today, but our first winter storm changed the plan by tearing down zillions of fully-leafed limbs, and dropping power lines everywhere. We hope to clear town tomorrow now that we have power and have dealt with the damage. So off to the woods.Heavy snow blanketFirst winter storm shears limbs, lines.Night; dark as deep space.Serendipity
Long after the catsMidnight cries awakenPre-dawn, voices stillMoon and EvenstarRomance outside my window.Deep night they part ways.Whippoorwill, my love,Your call my lullaby song.Lost dreams I follow.
Serendipity.. Winter already? Wow! I hope the damage was not too drastic. Good hunting in the woods and thanks for participating!Dianne,I'm getting there .. Slowly but surely. Thanks for visiting!Desert Cat! Great haiku! It's nice to have a new voice amongst us. Thanks for playing!
Lovely. Think I go to bed now...
I'm going to have to change my haiku..Moonless was the night?The wind whispered whateverAs I lay sleepless..Sigh.Sweet dreams, Cosmo.. Sleep well.
A few more from my studio.the scent of quietdew and quickened flora growthrestful xor ferventimaginings comewithout conveyances of day-a gift from our natureSleep is highly overrated? Urhm, just as much as the other highly overrated topic? I hope you get plenty of both, in their time. Something about the difference between breathless and airless? Never the who. :)
I love "The wind whispers sweet nothings" part (saw in your comments, though, that it started to whisper "whatever"). (Actually, the "whatever" part gives it quite the attitude.)Either way, your haiku offers a nice visual.
Oh cool! More Doom haiku!I have yet to sleep Doom.. Being awake is a bit painful at this time .. :-)Carol,Yeah that whatever was brought on by a completely sleepless night.
Oh, and here is the demented, surreal offering of the pinetop swamp ..NocturnalNocturnal movementDark urinal like cementKnee ding pj's rent..It's ok .. He said I could call him demented .. :-). I would not have it any other way.
Pitch black, sound of scaleson pavement, slither slowly.Terror! Scream chokes off...Flight interrupted...Panic! Fall like Icarus!Bed sheets soaked in sweat.
Goddess rises full,Ethereal dance begins.Footprints left behind.
here are my entries visuals up tomorrow cold night air chillswind rush past howling with fearHalloween beginseyes watch carefullyhunter become prey in night cold beauty fools all
I hope you are feeling better now.
I hope you finally got some sleep, foam. I saw what you posted, at an early end to my day. I couldn't respond as my exhaustion resonated with what you were saying, mixed with memories of my own, and I couldn't go there. It's an odd sort of pain, and can be self perpetuating through no fault of our own. Becoming a zombie, though not for brains but for slee-ee-eep.
Desert Cat,Oh man.. Do I know similar dreams ..Love the pagan 'Kurt offering..becca,Spooky! I like!lx,There are still some issues to resolve, but I'm getting there.Doom,I slept like a log .. Who knows .. I probably snored too .. :-). It felt good to wake up rested. I hope you slept well.
Hi, Foam, thanks for the invite. This one came out of what happened at my house the other night. No visual this time, just imagination.Night's stillness shattered.Beeps and tinny voice kill sleep.Change the batteries!GG
