Our #TankaTuesday challenge this week was to share our day (or week) and write a piece of syllabic poetry to go with the image. I wrote a Badger’s Hexastich. My week was not interesting, to say the least.
On Monday, we did some furniture moving, which is always exhausting. The temperature soared to 86 degrees and the humidity along with it. I developed a strange rash on my arms and chest.
On Tuesday, we had our yearly doctor appointments. The doctor believes that the sun caused the rash. I’m on low dose antibiotics for another issue and that makes my skin super sensitive. OR my thyroid levels were too high, OR… I’m allergic to something, OR its heat rash… It’s Saturday, and the rash is still there.
The doctor also gave us our Covid booster (#2) along with the new immunization for pneumonia. I have asthma, so this was necessary. As you can see, Chloe and Sophie, the Unicorn Cats, kept me company in bed. I’m feeling better today, just tired. I realized I hadn’t taken a break in ages, so maybe this was the time to slow down and go with the flow?
