Once the seed is planted

Posted for D’Verse for June 4  “Seeding


there is much to do in the waiting,

and nothing more we can do

beyond the act of waiting.


Frenetic at best,

the pause before fruition,

more painful than the outcome;

full of inane habits and ticks.


Pacing, pacing up to, and back from,

until something happens

or not.

a letter.

an email returned.

a message left on the fridge.

a rapid knock at the door,

then nothing.


all waiting on someone

to act, and in the acting

fill the moment with promise,


for once the seed is planted,

after all is done

waiting on the undone

is all we have left

to look forward to.
