Hospital Stays – Haiku Friday



    my skin is purple.

    IV’s, blood draws, sleepless nights.

    let me go home please!


This is based on recent hospital stay.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

      Thank you. I had 2 iv’s and numerous blood sticks and then I had to have insulin. I am terrified of needles and they kept sticking me because the veins kept rolling.

    Never would’ve imagined writing a haiku about a hospital stay, but you summed up the feelings well. Going home is the best medicine 🙂
