Waiting For The Revolving Door

This week the Wednesday Challenge from Weekly Prompts is; OVERTHINK. Please go over and visit their fabulous site by clicking >> Here . And today I have been “Overthinking” to make any sense out of my thoughts during the writing of my poem tonight …

Waiting at the Door

I was waiting last year

waiting last month

waiting last week

waiting yesterday

I am waiting again tonight

do I wait for tomorrow?

I might as well keep waiting

wait for what I have been waiting for

wait for that revolving door

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Frankie is such a handsome, happy-looking dog! It must be great to have him waiting for a cuddle, a walk, or to spend some time with you. Give him a hug for me! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    From your eloquent, relatable poem, I surmise that you hate waiting as much as I do. No rush on the “revolving door!” The music video is gorgeous and goes well with the wonderful poem.

    Hope you are enjoying your summer. Ivor! ❀ ❀ ❀

  2. Coop and I can relate! Those sweet doggies of ours…they wait mostly patiently…always watching…ready to go…I wonder if they could talk in English if they’d tell us how boring we are! πŸ˜‰ HA! πŸ™‚ Or they might say, “Hurry up now!” πŸ˜›
    Sweet photo of Handsome Sir Frankie! Cooper sits like that with one or both of his front paws curled back. πŸ™‚ Great, relatable poem, Ivor! Beautiful, poignant music and vid! Gorgeous scenes! Heart-touching words! πŸŒ…
