moon whispers to Note

Lottery Game Plays
pedestal as vaccine shot
lottery game plays
Minnesota Department of Health initiated a lottery system to administer the COVID 19 vaccine. Initially, I was livid and ranted daily to anyone who would hear me. Nonetheless, I wasn't going to miss this opportunity for my husband and I so I got online immediately and registered us.
As luck would have it Karl was notified by our insurance provider, Health Partners, and he received his vaccine shot quickly and I was notified by the above-mentioned lottery that I could get my vaccine three weeks later.
Of course, I went and sat quietly while I received the shot. Afterward, I said to the nurse that this was the craziest system I'd ever heard of. She basically just smiled.
I left and was grateful but still sat in disbelief that this was the best they had to offer.

Within These Four Walls
THE DAILY HAIKU online global FB group has a Wednesday evening "renga" event where one or two haiku are offered as a prompt. We are invited to create as many variations as we wish from the first line.
"Within these four walls" was the prompt and we added our inspired lines thereafter. Two of mine are:
within these four walls
my physical presence sits
within these four walls
the world is quietly spinning
with eyes closed, I see
