Waiting Room

People sitting around in a doctor's waiting room,
doing their things - reading magazines, texting,
playing games, all to pass the time while waiting.

In a chair set away from them all, I sit listening
to music and writing poetry.
Tapping my right heel in time with rhythms touching
my hearing in blissful ecstasy.

    Sometimes the waiting room is the best time to write
    poetry. Time flies by when your thoughts are filled with
    this favorite past time. Good.i (Report) Reply
