Adieu Flu

Dear Flu,

There is no easy way to say this, but
you are disruptive and really bug me
producing chaos everywhere you  travel...
infiltrating my mind, body and spirit
causing an inner battle between cells
you really need solitary confinement

Exhausted, I just want to sleep, but NO

sneeze, sneeze, SNEEZE & WHEEZE
in fits of fever, visions take form
and all becomes UNclear...

sipping  chicken soup for the soul
inspiration in each spoonful of noodles
drinking honey and chamomile tea
trying to find relief, I just want to breathe

You arrived uninvited, an intruder
seriously, you make me feel ill
It's now time for you to leave.  I've
packed your germ filled bags,  consider
this your eviction notice...

 your unhappy host....

author's note: I have been terribly
sick and I guess I needed to rant
Thanks for reading


  1. "drinking honey and chamomile tea" good anytime. The same "bug" has been making the rounds at our house too. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. This is great.. love the tone and setting of an eviction note. Exactly how it should be.

  3. I hope you are recovering - get well soon!

  4. Evict the germy thing and pitch it in the sea. Never fun. Hopefully it is on its way out.

  5. Oh, i am sorry to hear you have been ill. I enjoyed the poem and hope you are soon feeling better. By the way, i dreamed of Pup early the other morning. I so rarely do, and it was so lovely to see him in my dream.

  6. Now send it packing! You need to feel better.

  7. I am so sorrry to hear you have had the flu. Hope you are feeling better now. It does take a while to get over and feel better.

  8. Hi Truedessa - feel completely better soon ... take care - Spring is just about here - cheers Hilary

  9. Awww. How long have you been suffering with the flu?

  10. Yes, you must be firm with this intruder! Hope you feel better soon :)

  11. So sorry to read this and hope you rest and feel much better. Please leave us flu bugs and what not.

  12. Hope you feel better soon. An eviction notice is indeed in order.

  13. I am so sorry!! Sending Big Healing Hugs!!

  14. Thanks everyone for your kind words. I really do appreciate it!
