Emergency

Prompt from Poetic Asides: write about an emergency

Somebody’s crisis
rings out in the dead of night,
calling forth paramedics.

Speeding ambulance –
that symbol of hope and help –
sounds tones, flashes lights.

Doctors prep themselves,
patients on the way to fill
empty hospital beds.

Prayers go upward,
pleading deliverance for
somebody’s crisis.
