Haiku #87

A boy's new windpipe -
they're growing it in situ
from his own stem cells

How long I wonder before we are "growing in situ" not just parts

Helen said...

Whether pro or con ..
It's hard to dispute a cure ..
Using our stem cells.

Parkinson's disease
fetus in the dumpster
there are no winners

People do not recycle, efficaciously, scientifically, without getting all peculiar about godstuff.That very stuff invented by them to keep them from moving forward.
Weird, people are.

Probably means that he can blow his own trumpet.

Bravo Helen and
Linda Sue for producing
responsive Haiku.

Master Dave is quite
the inspiration to his
loyal reading fans.

Dave King said...

Mmmm, good question .

Not con. Wondering...
how does he manage meantime
while the new one grows?

Linda Sue
If God had meant us...
Maybe He did not mean us...
Wonder who he meant.

Madame DeFarge
Like it. Well said.

The loyal readers
are the ones who most inspire -
wherefor thanks to them.

I, too, wondered how they are keeping him a live while it grows. I wonder how long it will take. Amazing.

dave in my own experiencing huntingtons, parkinsons, cancer, heart disease, aids, ms have caused friends and family to fly away sooner than they might otherwise. love sustained the stranglehold they had on joy for none of them died sad. but a child shouldn't die. steven

I like it. Very thought provoking, espcially as evidenced by your commenters.

Dave, everytime I leave you a comment, I get an error message in my mailbox. Even when I email you directly to tell you so.

Another thought provoking question in 17 syllables. Amazing.

i truthfully enjoy all your posting way, very interesting.
don't give up and also keep penning for the simple reason that it simply just truly worth to read it.
impatient to browse through a whole lot more of your article content, cheers ;)

That was so subtle it was very powerful. "In situ": such imagery and abstraction from that. Great.

Dave King said...

Apparently they have given him a "bald" pipe while they grow his stem cells on it. - I'm not sure if that helps me to understand or not!

That is both tremendously inspiring and sadly true, I find. Thanks for your contribution.

Fragrant Liar
Much thanks for that.
AH! That old thing again! I keep getting that. Be assured, I still get the message, though. Are you mailing me at
davidalexking@googlemail.com ? If you are you should not be getting the problem. Sorry about that.

Mmm the thought I've been having is that if so many of society's ills can b e reduced to 17 syllables, how many should it take to solve them?

Very many heart-felt thanks for that contrib ution. It is much appreciated.

Again, my grateful thanks and very much appreciated.

So few words to instigate great comments and thinking.
