PAD Challenge: Poem No. 8 “Awaken”

Published Categorised as Poetry

Today’s prompt for Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides poem-a-day challenge is routine, a specific one or routines in general.

It seemed appropo for me today as it was so difficult for me to wake up this morning — a not unusual occurrence, just real annoying as it throws my routine out of whack. As I was scrolling through the poems already entered, I noticed a haiku. Perfect, I thought, it’ll stop me rambling all over the place as I’m still only half-awake. I followed the 5-7-5 haiku arrangement.


I awake in sun
Creak groan stand stumble to the
Kitchen for oatmeal
