Haiku Mix – Midday Nap

Elfje (shaken not stirred 😉 )
the child’s eyes
sweet midday nap

after lunch
my eyes, heavy
wanting only to dream,

American Sentence
Birds still at midday, all is silent, as we nap in June’s summer heat.


summer heat invites
young and old to slumber
in cool shadows


sea breeze lulls to sleep
summer day
midday nap
dreaming of gulls and sail boats
I sleep away the heat


When I was a child, I never liked to have to sleep in the day-time, though my mother did.  Coming to Italy and then living in Africa, I grew to appreciate the “siesta”,  eventually and now, as I sit in the afternoons, ostensibly reading in my easy chair…I often find I’ve taken a nap.  😉

life circles ’round
sleep the adults like children
in the midday heat

I’ve written this haiku mix for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai # 454 … Midday Nap and NaPoWriMo 2014
