Shattered peace

Drip, drop, drip, drop, drip

Abandon all hope of sleep

The tap is screaming

For the want of a plumber.

Silence amplifies drip, drop.

    Ugh! (not the tanka) the dripping faucet and insomnia!)

    Well done, Willow

    Here that drip, drop is comforting as we know it will help keep the pipes from freezing. Well done on the Haikuing!
