DBlog Week - Poetry Tuesday

Poetry Tuesday

This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you've posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!

I find poetry intimidating. It seems to me that poetry asks you to use words economically and effectively.  Word choice is very important and it is great training in getting your message across more effectively.  

I don't know much about it.  

But I love this challenge.  My attempt at Haiku. 

which finger prick
red peony blooms
strip tells life tale

Yes, you are right.  I picked the shortest form.  But that does not make it the easiest.  

Thanks for reading.
