Pings on my window
Old clock hung with red and green
Strikes twelve sleepless times

    Hah! I have been there my friend, but these days I have my just before bedtime cheap California burgundy and my nightly medication cocktails and I sleep soundly through the night. Oh, but I remember the years I was awake at the same bewitching hour you write about here.

    a very interesting image here. Is it a New Years Eve poem? I enjoyed your fun G string remark. How are your eyes? Maybe that is where it all started. From the time your g string snapped you in the eye. hahaha

    Excellent HAIKU! Red and green suggests Christmas... twelve sleepless times the anticipation of a child. Love, Keith

    This poem appeals to the sense of sound. It reminds me of a hail storm with some striking the window pane. I can see the imagery clearly. Great job! ~Joseph

    This reminds me of two things: waiting for Santa as a child and having to be Santa as a parent and rushing down half asleep to sneak the presents under the tree! You may have meant neither, but this haiku is a rush of memory for me! Enjoyed! Love, Shar

    I know the torture of being up and not being able to sleep because of the annoyance of something. This is a wonderful written haiku, very visual.
