Lyric Fire: #NaPoWriMo 2012 – Day 28 of 30 Poems in 30 Days – El Baño

NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 28

For some reason I woke up very early and of course some ideas were floating about. Thank goodness one popped into my head that helped me write this next poem. There are two more days to go for National Poetry Month! I hope you’re all still hanging in there with me. Enjoy!

El Baño

A cold hard floor

Warmed gradually by sun rays

Fragrant, humid

A place to release





Conversations reverberate off of tile walls






Littered with chemicals and creams

Covered in germs

Bubbles float

Champagne bottles sweat

Strawberries are consumed

Bodies merge



Lay dying

Spring forth

In the morning

Life begins here

Death is washed away
