The Art of Waiting

sitting pensively on the bench
wondering when they will arrive
thinking of all the things I must do
when I realize
the wait is worth the wait
taking the time
it takes to wait
may be the best time
for contemplation
for creation
for meditation
simply waiting
anticipation wanes
as I stop thinking
and start waiting
