after 3 years
my little stick
given time and space
has grown into
a baby peony tree
well worth the wait
for its very first bloom.
“in early june, the world of leaf and blade and flowers explodes, and every sunset is different.”
(not me, but a local who has a similar style)
“patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”
you know you’ve been waiting quite a long time
at the secretary of state’s office
when even a minivan load of nuns get restless.
“I sometimes think I was born to live up to my name.
how could I be anything else but what I am having been named madonna?
i would have either ended up a nun or this.”
kinder waits for the ball to drop.
“the world is all gates, all opportunities,
strings of tension waiting to be struck.”
