    I’m confused at waking at midnight to a dawn cough…
    but whatever you say…? your wife’s name Dawn ?
    It’s bedtime in Maine !

    • If there were a comma after “gusts,” would that help? Maybe I should put one there…

        Oh, woke up twice ! I should have figured it out…If I’m the only confused person,
        don’t change it… I’m really dense sometimes. I do like it very much now that I understand…

        Thank you for clearing my thinking up !

  6. Clearly a different take on the prompt. I think its the fadoista making a return 🙂

  9. Good one line haiku Mark. Love to see that you are trying this one-line haiku … our classical haiku poets did wrote their haiku in the same way often.
