and, wait…

wait, without desire
wait, with no longing
without expectation
wait, for day to turn
into night
is it i who spins this earth?
wait, you said 
and so I did
wait,
that is all i could do

***

sometimes you just got to wait it out
[true pre & post pandemic as well]

would you like to read my other poems about waiting?

Pratiksha – The Wait
Intezaar – The Wait 
a touch of crimson 
the end of waiting 
I Wait
(& a personal favorite) just one request

  1. Patience is the mother of virtue. I agree we have to wait and take necessary steps to drive this pandemic out of our lives. We cannot and must not think that we can blow it away like some kind of magic. Over confidence of our leaders will cause thousands of deaths.
