Sunday Sleep

Every Sunday the blog, Haiku Horizons, provides a haiku prompt. This week’s prompt is “sleep.”

When I think of sleep it makes me happy. I’m like a cat. I need lots of sleep. So, when I saw the prompt today I thought of one friend who could help me with this prompt, Garfield.

He was one of my favorite cartoon characters when I was a kid because we agree on something…sleep. I seriously love sleep, and I’m not a morning person…period.

I get anywhere from 8-9 hours of sleep per day during the week and sometimes more on the weekend. I have two alarm clocks that are set every week night. The snooze button is activated several time before I can bring myself to get out of bed.

Yes, it is difficult to get things done because I sleep so much. But, I need that time to rejuvenate, and plenty of sleep, exercise, healthy food and lots of water keep me going. I believe that if I didn’t do all of these things I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my busy schedule.

Today’s Haiku:

sleep soothes so
I silence the alarm clock
rise when ready


How much sleep do you get every night?

  1. I get about 7 hours a night. If my body didn’t need it I wouldn’t do it. I wish I could be awake 24 hours a day. There’s stuff to do! My favorite part of the sleep process is laying in bed reading. Besides that I see no use for it. Once my clock hits 5 a.m. I can’t wait to get up.

  2. I usually get 6-7 hours of sleep a night, would love to get more. If I don’t get up and out for a run at 5:30 in the morning, before work, chances are slim I’ll get it in later. I love the rare day when I can sleep as late as I want. Like your Haiku!
