Haiku XX

Wake in my own bed
Dawn blanketing home body
Light at the window.

    Hi Grace – I like your haiku! Also like your free form poetry. I am a friend of Marsie Silvestro and she showed me a copy of your poems awhile back. Great work! I try to check into your blog once in a while just for a poetry treat and now to see a haiku is a treat (I write haiku mostly). Hi to Ms. Marsie (I check out her blog too but not too much there LOL).
