Sleeping, but in pain:
Can’t sit up or move around–
Rescue from a friend.

I like this very personal and grabby expression through the haiku prompt “rescue”. This sounds like my sister two weeks ago. “Poor thing” to anyone in this condition.

Thanks! Never thought I’d consider “grabby” a compliment–but here I definitely do. “Poor thing” is right; reduced mobility makes you feel like an object. Hope your sister’s feeling 1,000 times better now!

I can feel the pain in this haiku. It’s wonderful when a friend can come and relieve you of some of it.

Thank you! It is indeed wonderful when that happens

I so hope that haiku wasn’t written from your personal experience OR my reversed-enginered haiku post blaming you!
Either way, feel better.

This was unfortunately written from personal experience–I still need to try that reverse-engineered haiku idea. I am feeling much better; I even went dancing last night

Ow, hope you feel better soon, my dear friend.

Thanks; I am feeling much much better. Thanks for touching on a more significant rescue in your haiku

Ouch — so sorry.
Friends are so very important. Be better sooooon !

Thank you–yes, friends are often a life jacket in the storm
Jan 28, 2013 @ 20:09:44
Do hope you get well soon…

Thank you! I’m feeling much better after much rest and rehabilitation
Jan 29, 2013 @ 00:37:54
If it is personal, I hope you recover soon. One more reason to have friends.

Thank you so much meenakshi–friends are an undeniable treasure.
