Impatience…

                      My stomach seems tight         
                             making me feel quite ill
                                        waiting for the taxi
                                            can’t seem to sit still
                                         pacing back ’n forth
                                    from window to door
                         did I give the right time,
               the right address for sure?
       should I ring them back,
  should I make a fuss?
         oh for goodness sake                  
                I should’ve taken a bus,   
                too late now to think like this     
                             the night’s ended in doom   
                                   always something amiss            
                                                too much to hope for    
                                              a night out on the town
                                        Oh, my Taxi’s arrived?
                           quickly banishing the frown 
                my calmness is rewarded   
         with time enough to spare         
     (when Patience was handed out…
                well, … seems I wasn’t at all there …)

  5. Hi Pen!🙂

    Believe me, when I ask you for your full name and address, you’ll know I’ve won!!!🙂

    Asking the Universe and the power that rises above all mankind is painless and maybe might even help!!!

    Such is the power of prayer…

    Love and hugs!

  7. Reminded me of my own lack of patience.
    Why is it when you’re in a hurry no one else is?

  8. Oh Patience…seems to be already taken dear Pen…yes…I should have called ahead before sunrise. I don’t wait in lines well, so yes before sunrise I suppose would be in time to get a piece of it, yes to avoid the crowd.
    Wonderful post my friend,

    • Many thanks Raven, and good to hear that someone else has a lack of patience, 😀 … I can be patient at a pinch, but it doesn’t last long.. (Pen hangs her head down in shame) … Mayhap I should practice more.. xx

  10. A brilliant poem, and brilliantly presented as well. I’m fascinated by the formatting tricks you use. I so wish I knew how to do it. I will be back!😀

    • Welcome IzaakMak, and pleased you enjoyed the presentation and the poem, I do try to ‘lift’ a piece and give it some kind of symmetry and motion if I can. IF not, I fail and it becomes just words and thoughts shared… not a bad thing, but I do love to ‘tweak’ now and again. xx
