Seasons of Patience

by: Rebecca Taylor

The seasons teach us patience

They begin in December with winter

Snow covered cedars make us smile

But the white roads mean we must go slower

And share our paths in order to survive the drive we are making.

Next March brings us the start of Spring

Gentle breezes begin to show a change in wardrobe

But mud puddles grow and slush is ever present

Making us readjust our path to get to the car door.

Summer shows her glowing face in June

School is out and children shout with joy

Extra-long lines of traffic as people clamour to leave the city

Everyone loaded down with hampers and sunscreen for the beach.

Autumn joins us in September

Beautiful leaves decorate the deciduous trees

Nights begin to get cooler

As parents and students look at homework together

Then the cycle begins again.

All At Once

by: Rebecca Taylor

Worry wound tight like a clock spring

Uncertainty bellows in the dark like a train’s whistle

Fear hidden under blankets like a frightened child in a thunder storm

Unsaid words linger like static

Pain rises like water in a leaky boat

Tension tight like a rope stretched to its max

Emotional turmoil boils like hot oil in a deep fryer

All felt at once like a lightning bolt striking

Finally a deep breath comes like everlasting relief

Patience walks in the door like a stranger come home.
