Worth The Wait - Poem by Barry Middleton

I look out on the morning
it is January in Florida
I know it took a billion years
to make this day

a gemstone sky in blue
feathered by the egret's plume
crowns the chilly sunlight
on the emerald landscape

an el Niño breeze
stirs the Spanish beards
of the live oak trees
and whispers with the pines

and now by chance
the children play
in innocence from time
so the day is like a prayer

I know it took a billion years
to make this day
and I can see them all
and all were worth the wait
