TIME AND OTHER NONSENSE I wish for world peace. I wait for a kind word. I want a spring day. I wait for February to end. I desire long legs. I can wait all I want but that will never happen. I hope for joy. I wait for a friend to help me laugh. I anticipate six more weeks of winter. I wait for the first crocus to bloom. I hope to win the lottery. I wait in line for a ticket. I desire love. I wait for my kids to call. I want to be rich. I wait for my biweekly paycheck. I expect uniqueness. I may wait my entire life for this expectation. I wish for acknowledgment. Still waiting.
