Why?: Haiku Friday


Why do noses bleed
when dreams are filling my mind
or at dawn’s first light?

And why do they bleed
not when he’s in his own bed
but when he’s in mine?

And why do they bleed
on sheets, bedspread, rug, floor and
not in a tissue?

It’s Haiku Friday. Join in the
fun.

Damn bloody noses!

I am so far lucky, none over here yet.

And of course, I just cursed myself.

And why do they bleed
Only on the white sheets, hmm?
So hard to get out.

So you're dealing with bloody noses, and I'm dealing with snotty noses. Hmm. Must be something in the air.

To bleed or not to bleed. THAT is the question. Great ku!

Ah, for the same reason, they pee their pants while in my bed.

Yep, I agree with all, Murphy's Law for Parents. I have yet to deal with a nosebleed. Which means that I have just jinxed myself.

Steph said...

Im sorry to hear about the nosebleed. Itd be too easy if it was in a tissue.
