I relate totally! I can lead some crazy hours and then pay for my obsessive passion! Especially Monday mornings!

Susie...let spontaneity reign...then it could be writing and if necessary erasing.. Reading can be kept for some other time..RS:)

I stay awake nights too, writing, thinking, reading :) It's quite a nice obsession I think. Well worth having at times!

Your posts reflect your obsession to write and that too, till perfection!!

I'm impressed! I had no idea that "obsession" would work in a haiku--and I haven't figured out how to do it myself, so congratulations!

Since I recently started writing poetry again, I have found myself getting up in the middle of the night, finding a pen and a piece of paper, and hiding in my bathroom! Too funny.
Love your haiku.
