Haiku Heights, Day 6 – Hope

My state is stasis
imprisoned by wires and tubes,
hoping for freedom

*

In noise and bustle,
sleep precious commodity,
comes in small doses.

*

Hope is at hand
telemetry is promised
an end to prison.

Sally will post this for me, as I have no wi-fi here.
Feeling better but not best.

Thanks also to Robin for e-mailing Sally a file to post.

    Viv, you well captured a hospital stay in these haiku. Hope all is well – and that you will be released soon.

    Viv,
    OMgoodness. In a hospital, attached to telemetry, where there is no rest,
    no peace and quiet to get a moment to compose.
    Somehow you did it…
    a great set of haiku under the those difficult circumstances.
    Thank you for sharing..
    .and
    will keep you in my thoughts and prayers for a quick healing and recovery.
    Peace and love,

    Never let it be said that ill-health need get in the way of a poem! You are the proof of that :)

    This sounds a lot like it was written in a hospital. I wish you a speedy recovery of both your health and internet connection. :-)
