October 6, 2002
Night
Black Silence
Waiting for light
Peaceful, noiseless, calm, dark
Asleep

The only haiku I ever wrote. In primary school as I recall. And it remains in some corner of my mind.

My Dad used to say that he liked working at night because it was quiet. As I get older I realise more and more what he meant. In his final years he got to sometimes going to sleep as the sun was rising, and sleeping till the light began to fade. Scary. Twilight Zone.

2.04 am and still going strong (so technically I’m a day late with this).
