The Art of Waiting; Don´t Wait

Standard

We wait

-for the bus – not yet here

-for the meal – not yet here

-for the play – not yet begun

-in the line – not yet there

For whatever reason,

-hope

-desire

-expectation

Not yet fulfilled.

Pacing the floor

Like an anxious father to be

Trapped in a time before existence

-turn-walk-turn-walk-turn…

Counting empty minutes

-in dreaded nothingness

-before our conception

In fear

-that it may never occur.

For some

-whole lifetimes are spent

-in this condition

Never satisfied

-to be who they are

-in any moment

-what torture!

-self-inflicted!

Stop! – Open your eyes!

-see a single flower unfold

-watch the sun or the moon

-stately crossing the sky

-hear the bird

-singing in the tree

-open

Feel the abundance of life

-within and around you

Let go – Allow

-the next moment

-to be

-whatever it chooses to be

In peace

-in appreciation

-of all you have been given

-In love

-in wonder

-in awe

-wherever you are

-In whatever situation

-experience it all

Don´t wait

-Live each second – as if

-Another may never come.
