Trapped

Mosquito netting above my head
and tucked securely around my bed.
What person forced to resort to it
hasn’t made  a sport of it
at bedtime, just as they recline,
shut off the lights, and hear the whine
of a mosquito, far then near
directly buzzing in their ear!
Mosquito netting so fine and thin,
both keeps them out and keeps them in.

I knew if I tried hard enough that I could find my picture of the mosquito–netted bed in my treehouse!  Finally found it in my Facebook photos.

      Thanks, Dreamer. I’ve been trying to find a picture of the bed and mosquito netting in a treehouse I rented five years ago, but fear it is on a backdrive back home! So the posed shot was as good as I could do. Luckily no mosquitos this year. Dengue and a new mosquito-related disease has caused them to have an aggressive mosquito-fighting program.

      Just came home because I was feeling like a picnic for mosquitos..First time I’ve felt them since I’ve been here. I got so nostalgic seeing the photo of my bed with mosquito net in the tree house that I went to see about renting it again next year and extending my stay by a month. Two months by the ocean and one in the treehouse.
