Sunday Scribblings, Hospital



Eyes
stalk
nurses
pacing man
recognizes cry
primal response to newborn son



gift shop volunteers
candy stripers
cheerful buffers


daughter retrieves
repaired mother from the orderly
executes chair wheelies

Herb Urban said...

Beautiful stories, all three. You always amaze me with your ability to convey so much with so few words. Maybe I should cease being amazed by you and just be in awe.

John Tran said...

Each word is worth a thousand images! Awesome art too. Thanks for sharing.

Your first stanza brought back vivid memories of Knowing it was MY sons cry I heard down the hall in the nursery.

Great stuff Sue.

Thanks for your comment. It appears you are from Coeur d'Alene. My dad grew up in Spokane and on trips there to see my grandmother, we used to "drive over" to Coeur d'Alene sometimes. It always sounded so romantic -- I guess it is a romantic name!

Jo said...

This is so sparse yet so evocative. So well done.

Nice to see some happy images from hospitals. I esp. liked chair wheelies, too.

Devil Mood said...

Yes, those seem to be some of the images one sees at hospitals. Some are beautiful and touching, others touching but a lot sadder.

Redness said...

Beautiful, so real, so true and all said with such simplicity, wonderful, Thank YOU!

Gilson said...

These seem to be typical hospital scenes. Nice write!

Gill said...

I agree with Sonya, with so few words, you manage to create vividly clear images.

I very much enjoyed both the poem and the photo. I'm trying to learn how to manipulate my photos on photoshop but still haven't gotten very far.

Laura Thompson said...

Very well-written. I like your stream-of-consciousness style.
