On Waiting


Tuck all the moments beneath your belt
that the Lord God has assigned to you.
A steamy summer day
a child's quick smile, uninvited beauty
the wet, slick grass
Do not allow what glistens with a slight sheen
to pass
unseen
untouched
unappreciated.
Learn to wait.
Then, gladly gather all these moments, unforeseen,
and tuck them 'neath your belt.

  1. Those unforeseen moments are often what means the most to me in a given day.
