Gumising Ka Na

I wrote this haiku before I slept. It was early morning and I was half dreaming. I felt I needed to wake up early because of work but I had the same haunting and urgency to write like yesterday. I had to grab my pencil and write. I wrote this in a few minutes. The words just flowed and I was able to finish before dozed off to sleep.

Gumising Ka Na

Imulat mo na
ang iyong mga mata
sa bagong araw.

Gumising ka na
mula sa pagkahimbing
ng pagkatulog.

Nakahanda na
ang iyong kape, itlog
at ang sinangag.

Bumganon ka na.
Mga panaginip ay
ipagpaliban.

Sumisikat na
ang araw sa silangan.
Hoy! Tanghali na!
