Dear Friends and Family,
Ed & Shirley
Sitting in this yoga pose,
the ceiling edges take their form;
still catching morning light.
Even the exercise is a waiting,
for the last moves,
My father waited for half his lifeto retire, and then missed being busy.
A contract, a letter to be signed,
a purchase to be made,
all fill time.
We expect things will happen,
other transactions will be made,
but not yet.
Moses had to shed his shoes,
the bush burst into flames
the mother-to-be wailing;
this is the moment about to be;
this is the waiting in fullness.
