Abed

All the morning at home lying in bed with my wife till 11 o’clock. Such a habit we have got this winter of lying long abed. Dined at home, and in the afternoon to the office. There sat late, and so home and to bed.

lying in bed
with my wife—
winter afternoon


Erasure haiku derived from The Diary of Samuel Pepys, Saturday 14 December 1661. Two other possibilities I didn’t like quite as much:

11 o’clock
this winter bed
no bed

all morning with my clock—
such a winter of lying
to the office
