the dove reminds,

Woke and Up – Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

Once I saw Ronovans’ prompt, woke & up, I chuckled. Getting out of bed these days has been a struggle ‘cos I’ve been sleeping unusually late. The first haiku depicts this ‘bedmatics struggle’ and the second haiku has political connotations.

The shrilling alarm woke me

but it was hard to get up,

my pillow held me down.

If we don’t stay ‘woke,’

we all risk losing everything.
