Hale Bopp

Write a Five Minute Poem. Use a timer.
Of the suggestions, I used “comet.”
(This was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I want to go back and edit but can't do that until May!) lol

Hale Bopp

Remember the night
We sat on the long ragged terrace
Stared out at the darkening sky
Your wife
My husband
There we were waiting for Hale Bopp
What happens when comets appear?

As it emerged in the blackness
We spoke of awesome things

And counted stars…




  1. Nicely done for a five minute poem! :)

  2. what's to edit? i love this. and to think you wrote it in five minutes! it's those quick sketches that capture the moment most truthfully, i think.
