Haiku challenge--bringing my game

Baby Legume Meets a Coxsackievirus, or
The red pinprick rash
erupted into blisters
on her hands and feet.
Baby spreads her palm
and gazes curiously
at tender white moons.

HFM sucks, poor little baby-legume. Monkey had it in august and it was horrible b/c he kept wanting to eat, screaming for food and then would cry so much from the pain. Hugs to baby-legume. I hope it gets better soon.
