Blinking light

Trapped in a hospital bed by tubes, masks, and contraptions holding her cast, she made a study of blinking lights. Each of the monitors had its own rhythm. Some were red, some were green. Some changed from one color to another depending on the state of her body. Her favorite was the momentary yellow blink that showed when she pushed the button that gave her another dose of painkiller.

One thought on “Blinking light”

  1. The lonely red blinking light caught my eye as odd, we had been driving for hours and then suddenly a red light. The road to Vegas when your a lone can be long and boring I have drove it more than once. And I never look forward to the drive there or back home.
