Learning how to wait

It’s not a game
Or a song
Or even a movie

But it’s played

Mostly alone
Or seemingly so

Defined by a lack
Patience pending
Thoughts in focus
Sending the mind
Reeling, careening
In and out of logic
As we process
And store

Memories and the visions
Slotted into lessons

Lessening the pace
As we learn
How to wait

"Learning how to wait," poetry by Roshan James (Roshan Grossman)


  1. Lovely piece. I am an inpatient sort, though I try not to be, I get inpatient trying;)
