Haiku Chronicle of Oct.26, 2011

Hospital Waiting

Eleven, twelve plus –
Music plays!


Five Pounds, Ten Ounces

Spindly limbs;
A bit underweight –
PawPaw’s pride.


And Then

Two early
Weeks make for weak lungs
Breath in pants.


It’s A Bird; It’s A…

In the sky! –
A helicopter:



Copter ride:
Only one kinsman –
A newborn.


Gospel (Good News)

Fluid on her lungs –
Drying up


Ups And Downs

Like her chest
Day of emotions
Ends on up.


The Night

Slept well, like…like…like
A baby.


My daughter gave birth yesterday about 12:30 pm to a little girl (our second grandaughter).  Two weeks early, she had breathing problems that were thought to be caused by a lack of elasticity in her lungs.  The doctor said she wasn’t producing the protein at a fast enough rate.  About 7:30, she was airlifted to a medical center about 60 miles away that could get a synthetic version of the protein into her lungs and solve her problem.  Upon arrival, the doctors there decided she had some fluid in her lungs that was drying up and that she was already doing better.  It was a day I decided to chronicle in the haiku above, most of which I wrote last night before going to bed and finished up this morning.  We’ve been blessed… again.


* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.

(June 13, 2011, the day after Dallas beat Miami
and LeBron James to win the NBA championship)

Oh, to be in Dallas
On this Monday morn,
And be a Dallas Maverick man
While tooting on a horn.

Oh, to be in Dallas
Now the prize is won,
To join in the spreading joy
Since they are number one.

Oh, to be in Dallas,
The place they call Big D.
Today it is a better place
Than here in Miami.
