Patience needs to be learned,
Like landing a plane,
slowing down from one speed to another’s.
Changing my mode from air to land;
bringing a mind into view
before comes the response.
This time I will try and slow down
and understand before flying by the person and
hurling a comment or another
for disturbing my peace.
Let me retain my peace in one hand
and hold this new thing … patience
in the other.
In joyful union.
