wait like the watchmen

We wait and want
Many things
Many a thing
Seems so far
     Beyond
       Ripe
But
       No
It's not time
not Yet


Influenced by David Whyte's poem, "Winter Apple," from the book of poems Pilgrim, Many Rivers Press, 2012.
from "Winter Apple"
Let the coolness
of autumn
and the breathing,
blowing wind
test its adherence 
to endurance,
let the others fall.

Also influenced by:
*we look for the resurrection of the dead, from The Nicene Creed, 4th century and the 130th Psalm
