Coffee Tales..Haiku











sleepy awake state
so much caffeine in my body,
am now living dead

***************************************

I have not done this for a long time now. This came out of drinking too much of the beverage!

Well said, I think I know just what you mean! It can even happen without caffeine - if you push yourself too far, it's like you go into a kind of overdrive and can't sleep even though you're way behind on sleep. A sort of zombie like state...

In fact I wish I could get to that right now because I am zonked!

Richard Kay said...

Ha! I know this feeling only too well. :-)

How fun- a caffiene induced haiku! Looks like a messy drinker, too. How fun- a caffeine induced haiku! Looks like a messy drinker, too.

percival: I have been in that state too many times. When I am dead beat, I can't sleep! Like they say too tired to sleep, too tired to stay awake.

Zombie!

richard: yes! Familiar feeling, isn't it?

gautami tripathy said...

get zapped: Actually. it is not a haiku in the strict sense. Senryu, yes!

Aren't the cups lovely?

There's supposed to be an intermediate state: dreaming awake. Coffee is belived to have been used first by dervishes of Soutern Arabia, to keep them awake in their all-nigth rituals. When I can't sleep due to too much coffee, I feel like a dervish - a poor man on his way to freedom, but that's about all there is to my dervishhood!:)
