“The Waiting Game”

By Floriana Hall



Waiting for night to turn into light

Spending the day in a wholesome way

But waiting

For the phone to ring

For the mail carrier to bring

Good news and reviews.

Patiently waiting

For fun in the sun

For rain on the plain

For a lass to say yes.

Constantly waiting

For dinner to gain weight or be thinner

To grow up or again be a pup.

Anxiously waiting

To come home from the fighting

War is hell no matter what we think we are righting

To hear good news from the doctor

Or waiting for death.

We spend most of our lives waiting

What else can we do?

We can read while waiting

We can write profoundly

We can meditate and pray

Or just be still and at peace.
