September Heights, day 25 sleep

Inspired by the theme at


Good day to you all, my dear visitors,

Day 25 of September Heights is on, the theme is sleep. I can imagine a few haiku on this theme, so let's go for it and do some haiku composing.

midday nap
a hot summer day break
against the cool wall

a butterfly
sleeping on a sunflower
shall he have a dream?

be my friend
blue butterfly on Honeysuckle
I am alone

Hi all, thanks for the kind words. To answer you knot2share ... I have written a haiku in Almost the same words on my other weblog on Basho. So it's possible that you've read that.

I love these two. Their attention to detail, even their playfulness . . . reminds me so much of Basho. Bravo!

Nice. The first sounds like a great way to pass a hot afternoon. I love naps.

a siesta - how inviting.....feeling lonely and being alone are 2 different things - the last one was sad....somehow nature eases the loneliness
