I wasn’t going to post a haiku after reading all of the requirements for pure haiku. But then I decided I don’t have to follow the rules to the letter, so here’s one from me, for what it’s worth.

sleep time…. tap leaking

subdued, regular drop…. plop….

thunder in my brain

        1. I would have taken a stroll to your blog already, but the phone keeps ringing and life-changing news is circulating around my family. Just a normal day around here. I’m on my way to you right now.


    1. Thanks. It’s funny how you get an idea, spend ages getting it right, preview it on your post, realise it’s terrible and completely change the words in the space of a couple of minutes, and suddenly it works.

      Or is that just me?
