Waiting

 

b_pupa_danaus_plexippus_sep1506

Patience can be a virtue.

Sometime you have to rest and just wait.

Go to the desert and wander the wilderness

Of your heart’s deepest desire.

Find a likely twig and spin a cocoon

Rest and wait and hope

Pray the rain won’t wash you away

That the snow will not freeze your bones

That some rude youngster

Won’t light a fuse in your hair

Thinking this is your funeral pyre.

You might just dry up and blow away

Get lost in the winds of change

But rest and wait anyway

A call might come

A miracle happen

Your wings might unfurl

And your soul fly free

It is important to be ready

To say yes

If that day should come.
