Haibun: Hospitals
Hospitals are a cottony kind of place. You are insulated from the outside world yet, right outside your window, the world is happening. The sun is shining, rain or snow is falling. At night, the hospital is full of odd beeps and alarms. Not a good place to be when one wants to sleep.
hospitals –
no rest for the weary –
sun shines bright outside

Victorian era hospital approx. 1870
