    it’s not the same you know

    waiting in line
    waiting for the phone to ring
    waiting (waiting) for the world to change

    tonight I am not passing time
    or fostering impatience
    I am waiting for news
    No – I am weighting for news
    time is not passing
    time is falling in layers
    each one heavier than the last
    each one heavy with hope
    and uncertainty

    I am weighting for the phone to ring
    and, yes, for the world to change

      “each one heavy with hope / and uncertainty”

      so poignant, so evocative. thank you for this honest and beautiful snapshot of the complexity of waiting with our tender, sometimes fearful, hearts, and our tenacious hope for an easy yoke and a light burden.

      my prayers are with you and your family.
