Haiku Friday

A note up at school:
Germs on the loose; be watchful.
My child coughs. Sneezes.

Cheeks like fireballs.
Seals bark in her little lungs.
Snot. (At least it’s clear.)

Steam. Then cool, wet air.
Applesauce: all you can eat.
Favorite bunny.

She cries in the night.
Hugs and songs — my magic tricks —
Don’t work. Stroke her hair.

How long? Till she’s well?
Till more Tylenol? And sleep?
Till she smiles? Till spring??

  1. Hope things get better.
    Kids are so resilient.
    The cure is ice cream.

  2. Okay, I won’t even try to make my comment a Haiku. These were great, though! I love that you could make some beautiful out of something yucky.
