Feeling Better — One Deep Breath

Feeling Better

Germs retreating in defeat
Sluggishly I breathe
The joy in that one deep breath

    This is great! After two weeks, I’m just hoping for a retreat, since it won’t be swift!

    Strongly felt on!
    Good that you are better and able to enjoy this basic simple pleasure (we don’t appreciate them unless they disppear).

    Way cool! Glad you are feeling better – this is a super haiku for the site!

    Your haiku made me take a breath! Wonderfully done.

    That was good, Lizalee. I like the second one, too. Sorry to hear you have been sick.

    Oh, I can relate to this! Just went through a bout of it myself. Glad you’re feeling better 🙂

    Really nice haiku — breath is definitely a wonderful pleasure!!

    Breath – we take it for granted until we’re short of it! Very thought provoking haiku!

    This cleverly touches on a good point of health which we often take for granted except for when we are sick. Sorry to hear you were. I’m glad you feel better!

    Goodness, I can’t add a darn thing. I will, instead, say ditto on the wit of tying one deep breath into it and ditto on how our health is really a simple pleasure we never appreciate until we are without it.
