The sun hides his face



Chirping awakes me
Amber dawn heralds the day
Night's secrets now hide

The sun's wide grin smiles
Nature speaks with one voice
I worm out of bed

Stop, my sweet wife says
You're leaving me here to rot?
She fosters that look

Life's not that easy
Marriage taught me a great deal
The sun hides his face

  4. Worming your way out of bed to catch the sun...a difficult choice of sweetness to start the morning

  5. I'm with Jae Rose. But then, there is also sweetness in staying in bed all day.

  6. ..and people ask me why I never married. Some of life's lessons are best unlearned!

  7. In agreement with JR. Your use of worm is fantastic! I can read the wife's look a couple different ways, and I appreciate that.

  8. Night's secrets may be hidden by the sun, but they are not forgotten in the day.

  11. Really like the idea of the night hiding its face and drawing its secrets deeper into unknown darkness.

  13. Life's not that easy
    Marriage taught me a great deal

    It about sums up everything life has to offer. A learning process in the beginning and an education throughout life.

  15. The story of the previous night hides but it may linger during the day. Staying in bed all day can be a good idea too, Robin

  17. Great use of the haiku and I love the worming out of bed to meet the sun and then having the sun hide his face when you change your mind ;-)

    and not let that rot spread.

    Just saying.
