Resting in Anticipation - Guest Post by Susan Patterson

Monday, July 24th 2017 @ 12:56 PM

Resting in Anticipation
I have been told that there
Will be good times.
That the time for struggle has passed.
And the time to rest in now.

   Resting in Anticipation

I have been told that there
Will be good times.
That the time for struggle has passed.
And the time to rest in now.
All will be taken care of.
Good things will come.

So if you please, my Dear,
Have tea with me and
Let us enjoy with confidence
And without cruel reserve
The anticipating of our peace.
 
Susan Patterson

Author Comments:

Okay, well, this is one of those early tea poems that is ever so uplifting and positive...and maybe a little sweet.  Nevertheless, it is a poem of balance. Here we enjoy anticipating.  Further, we are bombarded with such horrific news every day, that I thought I might be a voice that says, "Good things will come."     skp
