waiting for something to pass
for something to begin
Emily was quietly staring out the window when the rains came.
Joe across the street had been walking his little brown dog,
now they both ran.
It was a Sunday afternoon,
old science fiction movies on TV
No phone calls ...
Last night she had come close to finishing her book
but the ending eluded her
reminding her that some relationships
some wars never end
and some long cherished dreams have no resolution
only a gradual understanding
that forms in the long silent moments
between the great events.
