suddenly jagged pulsing

bleeding injury

    1. Shilpa, so pleased you liked it. I have had cuts like that in the kitchen before and it was honestly the first thing I thought of. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind comments.

  2. That's a little gruesome! Very picturesque, though, as a Haiku must be!

    1. Pat, no cuts are never fun. Fortunately I have never cut myself bad enough to need stitches, although my son has. Thank you for stopping in and for your sweet comments! ♥

  5. Haunting and too close to home - I've sliced myself with kitchen knives on too many unfortunate occasions. Glad to see you back writing, Kathy! Blessings!

  10. Gory! But then I'm quite chicken livered when it comes to blood and injuries. :)

    1. ovengoodies, when it comes to injuries and blood I react and do what needs doing first aid wise and then freak a bit later. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  11. Is this your subtle way of telling us you had a kitchen injury that required stitches? lol

    1. JoJo, While I have had my share of cuts and burns in the kitchen, I have been fortunate never to require stitches. Touch wood. Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  14. Not sure if you are referring to recent massacres or a home injury...but the haiku is very vivid!

    1. Tournesol, I was referring to home injuries. Amazingly enough massacres never crossed my mind! Thank you so much for stopping in and for your sweet comments! ♥

    1. Tournesol, I have been known to get a bit queasy. Once my mom had dialysis I got over it in a big hurry. If it's mine I freak a bit, if it is someone else's I do what I have to do to get it to stop. I am so pleased you liked my haiku. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

  19. Ouch! This made me cringe (thank goodness it's never happened to me.) It did happen to my dad when I was a kid... my mom had just uttered the words, "you're going to cut yourself". Oh, the 'I-told-you-so' argument that ensued :) Haven't seen you post for a while - good to see you back!
