Haiku Hope part 4 – being busy

Welcome back to another Haiku Hope.

This time, part 4, I’ve written a haiku about yesterday, a day that proved to be far busier than was planned. My phone rang maybe 6 or 7 times and emails were pinging constantly.

Unfortunately, our daughter had an accident at school and the resulting stress and message level was high.

She’s fine – a bump to the head while building a pretend horse with her friend caused a high level of concern and messages that all turned out to be unnecessary, but she had a bump and the school has to be careful and thorough.

Unfortunately the effect on our worry, stress level and heart rate couldn’t be undone.

Once she was home after being checked over we were much happier and had a special afternoon of doing things she enjoys (mostly showing off her singing and dancing to Britney Spears).

Here’s the haiku, I hope you enjoy it and I hope that these different, silly, simple creative examples are starting to help you find your own Creative Coping Strategies too!


Haiku Hope – Being Busy

Ring, ping, tweet, ting, groan

Phone sings bad news on repeat

Child fine, we’re in pain

Hi! I'm Steph, an amateur writer and illustrator specialising in Mental Health and being a self-confessed Spoonie. My website is home to any successful fiction I create, with stories that have won so far covering difficult subjects such as baby loss and mental health in grief as well as some funny and heart-warming tales when I get the inspiration. Every drawing and picture on my website was created by me. I spend a lot of time coming up with illustrations to accompany all of my posts and pages. I try to create original content across all of my channels, whether I'm writing about my own fiction or just generally musing on mental health or my own issues. I want to be part of the change because I believe the understanding of MH in the UK is getting better, but has a very long way to go. By being honest about my own struggles and symptoms I think others will relate and hopefully it will encourage them to talk to someone and get the help and support they need. Long term my goal is to help children too, help them understand their own mental health and how to help with the mental health of those around them. I live in the UK with my partner, daughter and dog, I swear frequently and I adore a well made, traditional, gooey, chocolatey, delicious brownie.
