Canyon Country, CA
Time seemed to stop
not a sound could be heard.
My heart stopped it's beating
no one uttered a word.
Chills coursed through my body.
I stood with delight.
Tears flooded my eyes.
The darkness seemed bright.
His feeble little fingers
wrapped around my single one.
I snapped back to reality
and got the fetal surgery done.
That moment was so magical
that I never will forget,
the way he held my finger tight
the instant that we met.
OK I want to give you the gist of the challenge so you can understand it better....
"Recently I recieved an email from my sister that included a mind blowing picture. It was a story about a pregnant mother who's child had spina bifida. The child would die unless he recieved a new type of surgery in which the doctor would operate while he was still inside the womb. Well, the doctor performed a C-section and made a small incision in the womb...and right before he began to operate...that small 21 week old baby stuck his perfectly formed hand out and grasped the doctors finger. A picture was taken at that moment...and it came out perfectly clear. It was the most breathtaking thing I've ever seen.
So, Echo, my challenge is to write a poem...from the perspective of the doctor in that very moment. ~Saxoness"
