Sleep



Dreamy paper boats,
Paddling across streams of hope,
Moon, my estranged guide.

Sleep so elusive,
Foot marks across lonesome hearts,
Deceptive nightmares.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Sleep.

  7. Lovely imagery you paint here with your words. The first haiku could be used for the prompt paper boats later on in September Heights.
