Exhausted Haiku

1.

There must be a word somewhere

for this kind of tired

bone-weary does not come close

2.

Painted fingers, broken nails

offer testament

to a long day’s creation

 

3.

Feet ache, hips hurt, and knees too

but still the roses

offer their heady perfume

4.

Listening to his snoring

 

from the other room

jealousy invades my heart

 

5.

The soft blankets and pillows

call to me to rest

head on pillow, sleep descends

 

Good night!
