The Waiting Room

Collected colors dreams still
holding on the words not yet ready

but to me it is the waiting room
the holding place where if I am careful enough
I won’t lose any of its
wildly lived perfect truth and meaning

The calm stillness looking
Ahead nothing no one
In front or behind near
Your arm reaching out only
You to comfort you
Are there doubts (more…)
