Poetry Thursday: All in good time


Some rest
some road
some work
some play

And in between
the waiting
and waiting
and waiting
and waiting.

You can't yell at answers
to hurry up

Or you can
but they won't.

They reveal themselves
in good time,
after rest
on the road
during work
before play,
but always
in their time

So rest
and walk
and work
and play
with no intention
but full attention

It will not speed your answers
but often
it pleases the gods
enough to throw in
a free gift
with purchase:

life, well-lived.
