storms, stars, and cell phones

It is 1:35AM and clearly, I am awake. My body is done in for and my brain is swooshing around my head bones, all inside-a-seashell like. You'd think I would sleep this feeling off, but I seem to have been struck with a case of the Insomnias, and as such, couldn't fall asleep if you told me Marcus Mumford would kiss me if I did (can't he kiss me anyway? A valid request, in my books).

The rain storm on my window isn't helping much.

As such, I have resorted to current-century dorkdome and I downloaded the Blogger app on my lovely Android phone so I could write a post...in an effort to pass the time until morning. Perhaps I will write a haiku. I don't remember what the rules are, so I aplogize to the poetry buffs in the room for messing with the syllable-appropritiateness.

Sleep evades me,
The tricky bastard.
Eyeball headache.

....how did I do? I write my best work at 1:49AM, you say? ...I thought you might say that.

Not bad for an English haiku, but you'll have to work on your Japanese. :)

"Haiku (俳句, haikai verse?) About this sound listen (help·info), plural haiku, is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras (or on), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 moras respectively.[1] Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables,[2] this is inaccurate as syllables and moras are not the same. Haiku typically contain a kigo (seasonal reference), and a kireji (cutting word).[3] In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line and tend to take aspects of the natural world as their subject matter, while haiku in English often appear in three lines to parallel the three phrases of Japanese haiku and may deal with any subject matter.[4] Previously called hokku, haiku was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of the 19th century."
