Haiku-y sort of poem...

Wrote this because--well, I'm tired--about my day. emoticon :winking: I used the Haiku syllable count of 5-7-5 for each stanza.


Waking early morn

The dog scratching on the bed

Clock says one-thirty


Work two extra hours?

Could use the extra money

Feel like a zombie


Did it anyway

I was glad that I did it

But now so tired


Am thanking the Lord

I have made it through the day

And now time for sleep.


Hasta mañana

Sleep calls me to my pillow

So I bid adieu.

Yes, I know--two different languages in that last stanza, but hey, it gives you an idea of how tired I am, si? Or--oui? or--maybe I should just forget it. ;p

Well, they are haikus with the syllabication that you have used.
