Diabetes Blog Week – Poetry Tuesday

Posted on

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.

I remember my poetry unit in high school English class. We learned about and had to write various forms of poetry. Not being the particularly creative type, I always thought mine seemed forced, and kind of lame. I’ve learned to appreciate it a bit more over the years, but never had much motivation to try my hand writing it again. But poetry is the challenge of the day, and with diabetes being a very real part of our daily life in my family, there must be some inspiration there. So let’s break out of our comfort zone and see what we come up with!

Blood glucose numbers
Fighting to keep them in range
Insulin’s my friend

(Okay, so it’s a bit short. Is it cheating to use a contraction in a haiku?)
