Baby Steps…

Baby Steps

I have two new and

different things in my

life that are additions

in retirement

 

Both are bringing me a

certain amount of

recognition…

But…

Each are moving

slow and easy

In their own time…

 

Like anything good

things of greatness

come to those who

wait and those who

remain humble

in the waiting

 

Baby Steps…

Moving slow and steady

Just the way I like it…

She Waits…

Hiding in the

evening mists

She waits…

 

Hoping what she

needs will find her

 

But…

 

Afraid tonight

will be additional

disappointment

 

Yet…

 

She still

Waits…

I Wait…

And…

I wait

Yet again

for the call that

never comes

 

And…

I wait

because that

is expected

of me

 

And…

I wait

knowing what

I hope for

will never

happen

 

And…

I wait

Because there

is nothing

else I can do

 

So…

 

I WAIT…

She Waits…

Wrapped in her granny’s quilt
Gently swaying in the board and rope swing
her daddy made when she was four
 
She waits…
 
Twilight and the sky is purple
Full dark still minutes away
 
Eyes peeled for the first star
She has done this ritual
since she was little
sitting on granny’s lap
Waiting…
 
Smiling…
First star and now for the
Starlight poem
Next to show…
The Dippers ~ Big and Little
Finally…
Orion’s Belt
 
She always looks for them
always the same order
just as granny taught her
 
Waiting…
 
Until she finally rises
just above the trees
Her Moon…
And…
Her heart beats faster
As she praises the beauty
of another Full Moon

Waiting…

Dark skies gathering
Storm brewing
Thunder threatening
Winds from first the
North then the North East
 
The air crackles with ozone
Waiting…
Hoping…
For a gentle
Soaking Rain…

Good Things

Mama always said,
“Good things come to
those who wait!”
 
Her wisdom has 
always led me in
the right direction…
If only I believe…
If only I am
Patient…
 
Waiting isn’t easy
But…
It does pay off
in the long run…

Hope

Changes are coming…
Letting go…
Hope is around
the corner
And…
Life is looking up
 
Sighing…
Not knowing what
to expect…
when…
But…
Waiting for something
New…
Different…
 
Right now 
I am standing
on the up side
of Down…
 
Watching…
Waiting…
Hoping…
To be
Found…

Waiting

Always waiting
The new Norm…
 
No expectations
any more
 
If something 
happens by chance
 
Then…
the cynic in  me
will be surprised
 
After all this time…
why should I expect
More…
 
Always an afterthought
if not outright
Ignored…

Waiting…

At times impatience sets in
And…
I cannot stand
the waiting…
the wondering…
the longing…
 
Things run through
my mind when I get
to this point
Why…
When…
How Long…
 
Then…
 
Everything is worth
it in the end
 
Waiting…

Royal Street, 2010

Looking into the
court yard with
nervous curiosity
she saw the sign
 
Palm’s Read…
it said
 
Did she dare…
Did she want to know…
Things were different
than before
 
He walked through
a far archway
and invited
her to sit
 
Opening a
Leather Bound
Journal
Searching its
pages
 
“Ah…here you
are,” he said.
 
“I have been
waiting for
your return.”
 
Royal Street, 2010
She had been
here before
Thankfully it
survived Katrina
