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
