Haiku Friday: Languid

There are quiet days, too.

Let's haiku about those-- the languid moments. Somehow, they stand out in memory even when other things fade.

Here, I will go first:

Sunlight crashed the morning
Hotel Chelsea.

Now it is your turn... just use the 5/7/5 formula, and have some fun.

Wordsworth wrote: world is
too much with us near and soon
lays waste our powers
Sabbath or just sloth?
We think God needs help. Oh, dumb.
Rest, back in God's arms
I walk in the room
He says to me, "Those eyes," and
Takes me in his arms

You know she's all right
Angel of the first degree
Danced in the dark.
We were slow dancing,
Band played "Stairway to Heaven"
We held each other up.
Stars give way to dawn
Sleeping bag hugs my body
Air is crisp and cold

Coffee sounds so good
But my pack is over there
Just five more minutes

Long, lithe, strong, fluid...
As she crosses the long pool
Each stroke so easy
Ann Arbor. Morning.
Rain. Awoken by thunder.
God is still speaking.
