Thoughts for the time it takes to wait

Thoughts for the time it takes to wait

Time is a bountiful woman,
giving you space in great quantities.

Avoid snatching.
No need to steal – it’s all yours.
Only take as much as you can carry in one go.

Her gifts have no shape until you take them
and make them your own.

What she offers is not limitless
but there is always enough
for your needs and desires.

Step into the space she holds and      be.

She has given you a home
which is as beautiful
as you choose
to make it.

    • Thanks very much, Margaret. I wrote it while waiting in a doctor’s surgery and today it popped into my mind as having a particular resonance. I hope you’re managing to stay well.
