Done for Carpe Diem Haiku Shuukan prompt, Sleepless and also for Recuerda Mi Corazon.
all I think about
is your cologne
whisperings at night
tossing and turning in bed
the moon winks at me
peep through my window

I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom.
i see my friend that we have both conversed with the moon and stars lastnlight!
🙂 Rebecca, thanks Maybe we do have a lot ion common than we think 🙂
Sleepless nights are a pain in the neck. A great trio of Haiku there Celestine. Always a pleasure to read
Al, thanks a million. 🙂 Seems like I’m having quite a lot of those these days!
I hope they ease soon and you can get a decent amount of sleep
a reviving scent…
Thank you Leslie.
Love the moon winking at you.

Missing somebody and having that almost tangible memory is both a blessing and a curse when they are not with you…I like this, it is very double edged.
Ste J, as always you are are to go right to the heart of the matter. Appreciates your comments, my dear. Missing you. 🙂 🙂
Perfect for my day. Had a restful five hours and then the alarm clock went off, unexpectedly, at 6:30 a.m. Not enough sleep.
🙂 Sleeping much better now myself. 🙂
Love your haiku as you talk with the moon and stars ~ Happy Sleeping to you ~xox

Sleepless nights…welcome to my world 🙂
Lovely Celestine. Despite your restless night, I am so glad that moon winked at you…
Lea, thank you 🙂
Ah, now I do know your name! Celestine! Yes, I too am familiar with sleepless nights sometimes …. you wrote about them just beautifully. Good to see you brought something positive out of loosing sleep. (smile) Love, Amy
Thank you Amy Rose. 🙂
I’ve had a taste of insomnia this week, so the sleeplessness is familiar but not the cologne! 😉
That scent is always with me. 🙂

They are all good, but #3 pulls me the most.
Seems to be many of us who have trouble sleeping. Luckily we do have the moon and stars and night magic to entertain us.
Too right you are Gemma. 🙂
A winking moon and blinking stars, coupled with cologne—no wonder you can’t sleep! 😉
All are fabulous but the first one is my favorite. I like the rhythm.

no stars were seen in my sky last night! only rain…providing for prayers before sleep would come.
Yeah, on sleepless nights, I pray for winks from God. 🙂
Hey Celestine, I really like #2

Thanks Amrit. 🙂
Mark M. Redfearn said:
At least you have the stars to look at when you can’t sleep, instead of a street light!
Hahaahaa! I agree, Mark. 🙂
sleepless because of intoxicating cologne…ahh, well worth losing sleep over. much better than losing sleep because one drank too much coffee during the day. weep. love your haiku set!!
Sun, Thanks so much for commenting. How are you? 🙂

The scent of my husband’s cologne is heady opium. I love the first one so much.
Thank you Stella. Like you I find my husband’s scent so intoxicating 🙂
Beautifully composed trio Celestine, but that last one is really gorgeous.
Kristjaan, thank you 🙂
You’re welcome Celestine …
