I Will Wait

I Will Wait ~~~~~ I sense I am on the verge, terra incognito. Vast, unlimited potential, possibility, still unknown, glowing, the aura of discovery.

How then could I have thought, known? Imagine imagination’s leap, now grown. many ways, not only down or sideways, wander, stars transfixed, […]
