Sunrise warmth appears,

Driving my darkness away.

Welcome wakefulness!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    My mother would have liked your haiku — she battled insomnia her whole life, and often spoke about how glad she was to see the sun come up. I like seeing the sun come up, too, but only because I like a new day.

      I wrote that about 4:30 this morning after waking at 2:00. Ended up going back to bed about 5:30 and slept until 8:00. Actually I had considered a different haiku using those words. I might still do it still That is, if I’m awake 2:00 to 5:30 tonight. A new day means you can be up and at ’em again, doesn’t it? Contest with yourself to see what you can produce in 12 hours time. I’m a bit that way myself.

    I love the picture and the Haiku which expressed so clearly the situation you were in, I love the Hope that comes with a new day – after illness or valley times – the dawn holds such Promise. Thank you something beautiful to think about.

    Love the Haiku and the picture. I am kind of an insomniac off and on. Too tired when I am awake during the wee hours to write anything. I usually read. Nice to be creative though.

      I don’t often write either. My computer is in another room; it feels too lonesome to leave my room and go into the rest of the house. I generally like to read a book or do sudoku. I don’t consistently have insomnia, but I hate it when it happens. Thanks for the comment. Love the get acquainted opportunity.
