All That Waiting

Woodlake

April showers...May flowers
All that from childhood
Floods over me this
April Fool's evening

All that about waiting and waiting
The goodness will come

The robins know
So do countless treetop others
And the squirrels
They're all talking about it
And I am listening...

All that from childhood
About waiting.
It's a good thing.
Beauty comes.

Right now it presses
With everthing it has and is
Through the mud
That it might be
Soon.

Just wait.

  3. Little bit of cabin fever there Sandy? I can't figure out which images I like better, the ones you create with your camera or your keyboard. Both are superb.

  5. Well . . . we got spring early BUT now it is all gray skies with all this rain that comes with Spring. I wish it would rain when I am asleep and let me get out more. . . one day! Hope yours arrives soon.

  7. If its goodness that comes after all that waiting, the whole life is worth waiting, even if life means to pass by in the wait...

    But, isn't life lived fully even as we wait for that final peaceful moment of goodness...called death... I know I am reading too much, here

    but poems offer that freedom, I guess..

    loved this, Sandy
    but, hope it wouldn't turn out to be foolish wait!!
    ...just the kind of kidding i like to do at times...hope you take it in that spirit :))

    wishes,

  11. The lights just turned on on my front porch -- forsythia!

    I remember as a kid hearing about other kids that put sugar in the salt shaker and salt in the sugar for April's Fool. I never had the guts to do something like that, pluse if I did I'd get "killed." (our term for 'you're in BIG trouble.'

  20. I loved the story of "The Ugly Ducklings" when I was a child, but as I grew up, I discovered that nothing is truly ugly, and if so, there are some beautiful ugly things in this world. I enjoyed this.

    I so thank you for your kindness and all your encouraging comments. You make me smile, and yes, wonder at the small blessings in life, which to me, means the most.

  27. Waiting for spring is like so much in life, it will come on its own terms in its own time; hints of it will come first, then vanish, then return. Beautiful photo, Sandy.

  28. lovely poem.
    I can feel it to, so I wait too. In the meantime I take in every precious bit of the end of winter for soon it will be gone. But spring.... the promise of spring makes my eyes sparkle and my heart lean forward
