Foggy Frog is here
Heaviness and confusion
Moving through the fog

Slowly awaken
Feel Gnawing Gnats all over
Whole body aching

Body on fire
Burning Bats surrounding me
Pain radiating

Knives in chest and hips
Pain is excruciating
Stabbing Spiders here

Needle Nematodes*
Numbness with pins and needles
Sleepy limbs attacked

*Needle Nematodes evolved into Needling Numbats January 2014

    Don’t Foggy Frog and Friends know what unwelcome guests they are? I hope you’ve got something to send them packing.

      Searching for the right tools at the moment. Acupuncture, Bowen Therapy and Lyrica seem to be helping a bit with the pain gang at least. Nothing’s sent Foggy Frog away yet…

        I’ve long been searching for treatments for the fog and haven’t really found any. Mostly I just find advice on making lists and all that. It does help things go more smoothly but I want to get rid of the fog, not just manage it!

          I know what you mean! I’d love to get rid of the fog. 😀

    Ouch! Strong images! Playful, too.

      Thanks 🙂 its my first time doing Haiku poems for a long time. I’ve written more about these characters in other posts as well.

        I recently tried haiku again after years. I’m liking it. I like yours, too. 🙂

      Thanks Dawn, I love all your haiku poems. They were part of what inspired me to give it a try!

    Just thought you should know, I was talking to my husband and he stopped me and told me that I wasn’t making sense. I quickly apologized by saying, “I’m a foggy frog today”.

    Your friends have officially made it into my every day vocabulary.

    • Megan S January 17, 2014 at 12:50 pm

      That’s great Celeste 🙂 I have a big project I’ve just started working on to try and get them out to the world. Would you be interested to being part of the team? I have Jenn from My Fibrotastic Life on board and Lynn from Lynn Paints it as the illustrator, would love if you would join us 🙂 If you’re interested I’ll send you an email soon. Jenn if you read this I haven’t got round to the email yet. Sorry! 😀
