The Classroom Cold…A Haiku Series

10 Mar

Last week…

I laughed out loud at

the face the girl made when her

neighbor sneezed on her

Monday…

The classroom, normally

so full of chatter, is now

full of coughs and sneezes

Wednesday…

Pain in my cheeks, right

above my back teeth tells me

I’m the next victim

Thursday…

Digging through the cupboard

for prescription decongestants

life is good again

Friday…

Medicine coursing

through my veins – Who put this

goldfish bowl on my head?

    I love this and that you were able to capture the path towards us getting sick from our kiddos in a fun way! Oh the feeling when we know it’s coming, and then the foggy feeling when we are fully in it! We can all relate to this poem for sure. 🙂

    One of the joys of being a teacher. Students do love sharing.

    A fun way to capture the slow, inevitable spread of the cold through a classroom

    Love, love your poem. And so true how those germs spread.

    I really enjoyed the structure of a series of haiku,
    transitioning from your carefree laughter to your misery! (Sorry!)

    OK, so this is pretty genius! I’m sorry you have a cold, but your slice is a gem because of it! Get well soon!
