Moments of mercy

Blue lights flash

unexpected this lazy sunny holiday

people moving about



somewhere someone’s life hangs

in the balance

between speed and mercy

copter sits in the open

knowing soon it must go

high in the air

rush rush

heartbeat depends on quick straight flight.

the street where I live

a distant neighbor

unknown by myself

I hear the buzz of chain saws in the distant like

angry Mosquitos

saying a prayer for the unknown traveller

soon sky bound for rescue

soon to live to see another day

that I hope and pray.


down the street the Mercy flight helicopter waits for its passenger, a neighbor down the street, praying for life for this unknown soul.
