#Tanka Tuesday (1/23/18): The joys of bronchitis…#feature #haibun



Wondering why I haven’t posted anything of my own since Saturday?

Well, it began as a cough. It expanded to chronic, and by Saturday I needed to cancel my performance at Rockland Poet’s January Open Mic (at least I wasn’t the feature!). Chronic became incessant by Sunday. I took off yesterday and today before I dragged myself to the doctor (earlier today, in fact).

Turns out I caught bronchitis.

So I’m laying semi-low for the time being. A few reblogs, a few likes, but even this brief account proves draining. Now that I’m on antibiotics, I hope to be on the mend, soon.

Ride the dragon!

Sudden rain

a breakout of clear skies

and sunlight follows

there I go coughing

through it all!
