off-beat circadian rhythm

 

waking teenage boy

in morning proves real challenge

he’s wired to sleep sound

after three alarms buzz on

“What time did you go to bed?”  is my first question 🙂  Join Elsie’s weekly tanka challenge at Ramblings of a Writer.

under shadow of pines

you will hear my voice

sunlight filters through forest

in distant sky, eagle soars

the story

of us,

i’d wake up

to you next to me

every morning

and watch

regular

trace the edge

of your angular

shoulder blade

and feel your

warmth

even before

we sleepily

embrace,
