    Love this Haiku. Not a place we want to be or want our loved ones to be. Sara

    As a former intensive care nurse, I can attest that this reflection is spot on. A lot of depth and unstated emotion in this haiku. Good job! Karen

    You surely say a lot in these three lines, Jim. People always send flowers to those who are in the hospital, even when the symbols of sympathy and compassion are confined to "the waiting room." Great poem! Love, Carolyn

    Deep and powerful emotion. I'm impressed... you transmit a terrible story without saying anything. This is GOOOOD, Jim. Great! Ruben.
