~ Waiting is Labor Intensive ~

I am
All edges.
Red and black
And jangled, jagged glass
Around the edges
Of my

Nerves flare
Fight despair.
Count each breath
And meditate to pass
The patient hand

Be still.
Open and fill
The empty
Places with calm and now.
Peace replaces
Fear’s blind

The spine
Is mine.
To control
Energy’s path, divine.
With world’s stars

And time…
Well, It passes.
It passes.
As it has, does and will.
Stress doesn’t

I have
A path
Full of light.
Reflected from the shards
Of unknown

Rebirth from every adversity, a challenge overcome but not challenging Fate

Bounce back, a super-ball… I keep hitting walls…

So I wait. And wait. And wait…and wait.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.

      Aw, you flatter me. Thanks very much for stopping by. As for the blog title, it’s one I’ve had for several years, just not on this particular site. I love all things “dragon” so it could be nothing else. 😉

    Listening to my folk music while reading this gave your piece a little more power. Great work here, woven well and quite intoxicating. If I can wait while reading this, I wouldn’t mind waiting at all. Thanks for sharing!

    I write such and love to read as well to find out how others are treating the subject..

    Soon, you would realize that there’s no more wait and that things have started unfolding in the manner you have always wanted them to be.. 🙂
    All the very Best
