my vision is blurred

can’t see the forest thru trees

splendour in the grass

“10 HAIKU ABOUT ILLNESS & HEARTACHE” by Alexis Rhone Fancher

Photo by Alexis Rhone Fancher

it’s been a hard year,
people around me dropping
like so many flies…

1.
Big Bus belches, groans,
it lumbers down Pacific
fast. It goes somewhere.

2.
I need a shower.
I smell of desperation.
Can’t get out of bed.

3.
My back is aching.
Hot & cold packs alternate.
No relief in sight.

4.
Is it a virus?
Enough antibiotics
can kill anything.

5.
If matter cannot
be destroyed or created
will we reconnect?

6.
I have a fever.
My skin is clammy & hot.
You’re not here to help.

7.
If acceptance is
key to integration, then
can I sleep at night?

8.
I ask for a sign,
just something small, no big whoop,
so I can move on.

9.
The pills are working.
The pain a dull ache inside.
How long till its back?

10.
If energy can’t
be created nor destroyed,
are you still out there?

it’s been a hard year,
people around me dropping
like so many flies…
