Why is it important?

Do doctors understand what a the experience of waiting can be from a patient's perspective? Should they? The poem with a slideshow makes one person's experience explicit.


I find that writing poems about experiences, deepens them. The creativity is freeing and gives joy to potentially unpleasant experiences.
