MS Haikus

MS Haikus

 

This outta be good.

 

The haiku (High-Koo) is a Japanese form of poetry.

Only seventeen syllables total in three lines of five, seven and five syllables each.  (My kind of quick read.)

Haikus are fun to compose so I thought I would come up with a few that pertain to life with multiple sclerosis.

Hope you enjoy.  Here goes…..

 

 

(What I say to myself when I meet someone I know on the street)

Can’t think of your name.

Dear God I’m drawing a blank.

I will just fake it.

+++++

I walk like I’m drunk

so give me beer and maybe

I will walk better.

+++++

I pushed the button

but the door did not open.

Maybe it’s broken.

+++++

A stain on my shirt.

Will simply stand hunched over.

No one will notice.

+++++

Asleep in my seat.

Unable to stay awake.

Boring funeral.

+++++

Avonex, Rebif,

Betaseron, Copaxone.

Injectibles suck.

+++++

Accessible curb

has a lip that is too big.

Lift your foot higher.

+++++

Need to wash my feet.

I will have to bend over.

Eh, maybe next time.

+++++

Looking at myelin,

the holes are growing bigger.

Brain like piece of swiss.

+++++

Have to pee again.

Just went an hour ago.

Living in the bathroom.

+++++

Lost my confidence,

my pride, self-worth and esteem.

Thankful there’s ice cream.

 

And lastly…..

 

Reading My Odd Sock

makes me sick to my stomach.

Can your spare a Tums?

 

Give it a try and come up with your own MS haiku.  Share it here in a comment.

As my favorite teacher used to say…”You might not be a poet, but your feet show it.  Because they are Longfellows!

      WOW! Nice job with your haikus! I especially liked your last one–had that special Margaret cynicism. Thanks for your creative work!
