The Waiting Place…….for people just waiting.


Waiting for a train to go

or a bus to come, or a plane to go

or the mail to come, or the rain to go

or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow

or waiting around for a Yes or No

or waiting for their hair to grow.

Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite

or waiting for wind to fly a kite

or waiting around for Friday night

or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break

or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants

or a wig with curls, or Another Chance

Everyone is just waiting.”

This is very perceptive, hope you get more views.
Everyone is just waiting.

Such a defined write!, you spill out, in which you pen
Waiting, you have captured the in between,
I so enjoyed your words, and your vision.
Wonderful work this welcome to poets cornerteddybear
Only just saw this poem, so true we all seem to be waiting for something, I try to remind myself to take each day as it comes, whatever that day brings as tomorrow is a brand new day be it a difficult one or hopefully a great one, wave
