Blocked – A Tanka

One appreciates

The joy of breathing freely

Only when gripped by

The claws of a callous cold

Barricading one’s airways.

Emma H, age 26, 03/05/2017


I was inspired to write this poem whilst struck down with the common cold last week – I’m finally getting to the point where I can breathe comfortably through my nose again!
