Day 5: A 20-line poem


Day 5:

Write a 20-line poem about a memorable moment in your life.

“The warmth of the night,
a full moon as bright as the sun,
long day of hard work
pain, screaming, excitement,
A moments of silence
Phone call, slight panic
More silence
A band of doctors
poking and prodding and pushing
More panic and anxiety
Suddenly it all stopped
an hour, two, of peace, resting
a non-existing cigarette
cursing at the moon on the balcony
a silent prayer to a denounced God
more waiting, a visit from beyond the grave
the whiff of a too known cigarette
a strong chime from the monitor,
a push and a scream,
and then a screm from a long awaited angel princess.”
