Diabetes Blog Week - Poetry Tuesday

This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you’ve posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!

It has been an extremely long time since I wrote anything resembling poetry. I went through quite the “dark period” in University where I thought I had to suffer to become the next amazing Poet. Thankfully that only lasted a couple years and I could go back to being my jovial self J. Here’s my attempt at a Haiku about an extremely nasty high blood sugar that refused to go down last night.

Oh blood sugar, high
why do you irritate me
go down, go down now


  1. Love the haiku... Hate the high. Around here we call those "sticky highs" and they irritate me to no end!

  2. Simple and to the point and exactly how we all feel! I love how you wrote it! :)

  3. I can totally relate! Well written!

  4. There's something magically simple about a haiku! Lovely words to express a recurring annoyance!

  5. Those stubborn highs are the worst... of course, so is the waiting for Lows to rise when you're trying not to inhale the entire kitchen! Thanks for the short and sweet (no pun!) addition for D-Poetry Day! Can't wait to read more.
