Wait…….


Wait….


Mother waits, neonate grins

Flowers wait, the bees spin,

Dew drops wait, pristine dawn,

Groom waits, bridal lawn, 

What is life, but a string of endless waits?

Beetle waits, spiders’ claw,

Innocence waits, corrupt guffaw,

Widow waits, bygone way,

A grey beard waits, judgment day,

What is life, but a Sting of endless waits?

Bliss and dolor, the cross of Lorraine

Like the leaf and the thorn, on a thicket vein

Each can’t stand one another

One is imperfect without the other


I stand await to ask you straight,

“What is life, if there is nothing to wait?”

Sunil Varma….

    Very true… Life is nothing but a wait, a long wait.. And this wait ends with death…. Though we know the end, there is no other choice than wait… Beautiful poem…

    the problem if we wait because we want all the things come down to us …but have we made an effort to make a first move ?

    sad but nice though 🙂
