Y/. Never Waiting Again


While waiting in a cue or jam
Let's try to connect to our heart
And search for a lovely feeling

While waiting for the elevator
Let's try to connect to our God
And search for a lovely thought

While waiting for a train or plane
Let's try to connect to our universe
And search for some lovely words

We may end up
Never really waiting again!

    I had an apprentice once I sent to the chemist for a long wait. They sent him back after half hour! I agree with what you say. This is a good piece of free verse with a good message. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful acts...with positive effects!
    Waiting is often painful...but why not having positive thoughts, reflections which itself is zikir.

    Thanks...a 10. (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
