When Time Stood Still

Euro 2020 millions  of football fans yearning for their treasured game watching Denmark playing Finland were stunned into silence.

Shouting drinking larger

stunned into silence

football was lost

player went down

concerned focus shown

closed team circle

protective ring assembled

the not knowing

time stood still

extreme dark expeditions

uplifting breaking news

Christian Eriksen collapse

heart attack victim

stable in hospital

our prayers answered.

a life saved
