Small steps are not necessarily baby steps
they are in some ways a measure of wisdom
an acknowledgement that needs need balance
and patience is not the same as doing nothing
Ah but waiting is just so hard don't you find?
it grates and creates such inner tension
why Why WHY ... oh why can't I just ...?
Patience is thus my deliberate act
an allowing for time and space
a letting in of the light of understanding
underpinned by my reluctant acceptance
that fate will unfurl it's flags of meaning
if I care to learn this new form of semaphore
a task in itself to be going on with I suppose.
