Patience

On sun bleached mornings like this,
when our carefully arranged plans
get wrinkled and tossed aside
by fateís flippant hand,
I become hostile with patience,
falling apart markedly as
the unsettled day drags on.

You temper my mood,
expelling the anger
with an explicit sigh,
a method to release,
skin merges with skin,
beneath bones, tendons, claret,
lies the bread of souls.

You allow me to feast on yours
and so Iíll never know famine.

Oh, boy! It doesn't get more beautiful than this. The last two lines are exquisite. Beautiful poem, Corinne.

OH Corinne - divine.

'lies the bread of souls'

My friend - that is one hell of a line.

Corinne, this is so good, you are the Queen,
hands down.

You allow me to feast on yours
and so Iíll never know famine.

You sound kinda hungery here,
anything I can cook up for you?

Beautiful once more  

have to add a little ditty I heard once on "patience" though

Patience is a virtue
Or so I'm told is true
Women seldom have it
Men, they never do

Corinne,
Your poem is wonderful, the stuff dreams are made of. And it set me dreaming. *L*

wonderfully penned, Corinne

Patience Wears Thin

With days of Winter not yet fully barred,
I dream of shedding all the cold within;
I struggle to keep patience warmly cloaked,
while it prefers to bare its eager skin.
