19 February 2015 — #haiku

stuck inside while sick
the world goes on without me
I cough and wait

Please note: Since I have made so many nice friends here through haiku and I have others I know that read this, I wanted to remind people that not all poems are autobiographical. In other words, I am not at all sick, but merely responding to today’s poetry prompt. It’s a nice reminder to be grateful for my health!

  1. First of all — thanks for the note — I’m glad you’re well 🙂
    Second — I like the interpretation of the prompt. There’s a horrible loneliness that comes with being sick.

    All the best —

    • I have been there! I grew up in New York and went to grad school in Minnesota. Grateful to be in Seattle now where we are having unseasonably warm weather. I hope you get out soon.

I love to hear what you have to say.
