Write a haiku about your health focus (or condition).
Before I wrote this haiku, I meditated on the profound changes taking place during perimenopause and menopause. I reflected on the sensations — physical, emotional and spiritual — that accompany menopause. Since my personal health focus has been on menopause and the heart, I decided to write about that topic. I find it beneficial to meditate in this way before any type of health writing — not just poetry.

The Pause, by Judith C Evans
a skipped beat flutters
wise blood pausing on its way
lives another day
