It Seems So Distant — Five Haiku

It seems so distant

When he jogged the woodland trails

Before getting sick.


His lungs are now weak;

Coughing has exhausted them

And his head still spins


And every breath hides

A rumble deep within,

And he fears breathing


Which will send his head

Spinning round and round the room.

He sits down quickly;


He doesn’t get up

Let alone go for a jog.

The outdoors can wait.
