short forms 24th February 2016

a new
freezer buddy
for her deceased father
the family dog, run over.

proto-clouds climb to the blue

woken early
by the dog crying
paws on the bed
by the time I've showered
she's asleep again

afraid
to phone the doctor
blood tests
terrified
I'm becoming a hostage
to old age

no news is good news

Aspirin. 300 milligrams. Thin the blood.

Poor Trickster. :(

Did you phone them back? (I'm always afraid, too.)

Lovely haiku.

No, I haven't yet. I'm such a scaredy-cat.
