Word of the Week- Waiting

We are all just waiting. 
In the waiting place.

Waiting on the artist to shower  
or the wind to blow

waiting for the boy to move 
and the snow to snow

waiting on the baby to sleep
waiting on mom to shop

waiting on dad to come home
waiting on a the snow to stop

waiting on the call off of school
waiting on the dog to "go"

Waiting on ice to melt
Waiting on water to flow

waiting on a package to come
waiting on a truck to start

waiting on coffee to brew
waiting on romance of the heart

Everyone is just waiting.

For as much as we wait, others wait on us.
So forgive and move on without a fuss :)

My inspiration....
from "oh the places you will go" by Dr. Seuss

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.
