Waiting…

Daily Prompt: A Bend in Time

by michelle w. on September 27, 2013

When you’re giddy with excitement, does time speed up? Slow down? Tell us about the experience of anticipation.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us WAITING.

As it is his 13th birthday today: here is my take on WAITING:

Sport has so much WAITING!

  •  Waiting to get a chance to go on the field of play
  •  Waiting for the ball to come your way,
  •  Waiting for the chance to go for the goal line
  •  Waiting for the glory

But: You have your mother’s adoring look:

Whatever the score, whether you score or mess it up- she still loves you a lot!

Are YOU looking, dad? My heart rate is up, time is slowing down, I just want to be YOUR hero today!

Look, Dad, I have the ball!

The try in the game of Rugby came later…

The Lesson for today:  Don’t let your son beg for your approval. Do not let them wait to hear that you love them…  They don’t have to perform to earn your love, they just have to BE!
