Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

image from Haiku Challenge
At last! Solitude
A chance to chat with my thoughts
I rouse them from sleep.

Bleary eyed, foggy
Stretching, yawning, blinking wake
Spurning inertia.

I greet them warmly
Like old ladies over tea
And take pen in hand.

written for Haiku Challenge, Day 15
