Too Tired Tanka and Haikus–Day Twenty-two #OctPoWriMo October 22, 2017

Hike to get in shape
joints and bones express outrage
legs threaten to cramp
chores will go undone again
dog sleeps upside down on couch

Is something awry?
though I hold pen to notebook
the page remains blank

After hike in heat
why do brain and hand rebel
when knees are what ache?

Tashi didn’t go
now she paws my sunburnt skin
all I want is sleep
