Photo Challenge #15 “Birdhouse” – Waiting.


Wait he said.

So I wait.

Day in day out.

How long?

Four years six months eight days.

Said he would come.

Worth my while to wait he said.

So I do.

The house across the way is odd

Always shrouded in fog

A road going to it

None coming from it.

Coaches arrive

Never depart.

I’ve seen a lot,

You do when you wait

See a lot.

A lot of oddness.

But I have my resolve

He will come

He said he would.

I can’t leave

What if he comes?

What would I do then?

So I wait

And I will

    Sometimes waiting can be so hard. But if we didn’t wait, then we might miss something. I enjoyed this one Michael.

    Quite eerie. Makes you wonder and wonder, afraid to wander. Very good.

    Beautiful. I loved it.

    I’m so impatient. Waiting always kills me. Especially waiting for someone.

    Excellent Michael, this reminds me of a love song, the promise of a return … which never seems to arrive.
