Y/. Never Waiting Again - Poem by Aufie Zophy

While waiting in a queue 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!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

if we can turn waiting from something stressful into something beautiful, useful, our next wait will no longer feel like a wait

    So beautiful Aufie. If nothing we have our minds and your words express the way we should be using the mind. Rather then filling it with unnecessary demands.
    So please I stopped by. Thank you (Report) Reply

    Like this. Question, is cue the American spelling of queue? In the UK cue is a billard cue. (Report) Reply

    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
