Comeback.

Alarm starts beeping,
flight of fantasy cut short,
return to routine.
********************************
Sandals back in vogue,
winter boots beat a retreat,
spring in step returns.

    1. Thanks Shilpa. I set my alarm 15 minutes earlier than my scheduled wake up so that the snooze doesn't make me late :P

  5. I hate alarm clocks. They disturb my sleep. Unfortunately, without any alarm clock, I am wide awake at 5 am on Saturdays and Sundays.

    1. Glad you liked it Sarala. No, I can only differentiate Tamil from Malayalam when I hear them. Would enjoy reading a translation of the post if you can put it up for non-keralites like me :)

  13. The love and hate relationship with alarm will continue for ever, just like the relationship between husband and wife, we hate also and love also both at the same time. Life with out a alarm clock is
    impossible.
