Patience

Pandemic slow-down, life in rebound,
Slow-motion days
While minds play;
Racing, restless, shamelessly demanding
Answers to prayer that do not come.

Patience.
Two syllablesof irksomeness
Revving the brain-squall of fractiousness,
The caffeine-fuelled maddness of life.
Patience.
Annoyingly, it cannot be said fast,
In any accent, it’s pregnant with pause,
A purposeful word.
Patience.

Enforced quietude, life in solitude,
Time for prayer, not despair;
Ardently, purposefully, in undemanding faith,
In Spirit-led strength of hope,
Pray – and peace will come.

Patience.
