Sleeping in the hall
sticky backs on the lino
I can hear dad snore

Not the poem which we have read, but that to which we return, with the greatest pleasure, possesses the power and claims the name of essential poetry.

Daedalus, Charlie and gomar
Thanks guys for the beaut comments. Daedalus your comment reminded me of the times we slept on the lawn and the prickles on our backs and the velvet black sky and the million stars .....
We lived out in the back-blocks -so no lights anywhere.
Charlie, I think we share some similar childhood feelings - thanks as always for reading.
Gomar, you make me blush but couldn't say anything that means more to me than that - thanks to you as well. regards huni.

This haiku made me smile. Its rich with emotion and childhood memory. -Philo
