    "through the cracks of sleep" is a wonderful line! :-)

    Terrific haiku showing the strengths of the genre as a single line of poetry and still remaining a poem filled with tension and resonance.


    Unless a danger noise occurs, I can sleep through anything including the most violent of thunder storms. I've written a few poems about sleep, who hasn't, but the above one is wonderful, and I'd just like to add one of mine here…
