Ah, nobody likes a hospital visit, but at least your haiku captures the essence of such a visit.

Sanaa Rizvi said...

Lovely write, Gillena. Hope your mother-in-law is better now ❤️

I can hear the footsteps on the squeaky clean floors.

Diane Mayr said...

Hospitals can be eerily quiet and squeaking shoes on linoleum floors can sound as loud as fireworks!

brudberg said...

depending on who I visit, those squeaky floors could be an ominous sign.

My mom has been in and out of the hospital, so I know about those arrows that help navigate you though the clean floors. I am glad she doing well and resting.

My husband's been ill. Spent about 2 months in hospital. Until I read your poem, I hadn't focused on the gratitude I feel for them.
Glad your mother-in-law is doing well.

Glad things are going well.

If you want a little more action, you might try "following the arrows" for line 2, but action isn't everything.
