Surrendering to the Waiting

Surrendering to the Waiting

There is beauty in the quiet moment of an early morning…and in the silence of my trailing thoughts, I simply wait for a birdsong that will define the harmony of living authentically no matter what the accompaniment life will orchestrate…there is much to think about…to discern…to imbue…to look beyond the horizon and catch even a mere glimpse of what is there for the taking…this is where the mystery lies in wait…the unknown…that is beyond man’s control…and that can only be engaged with quiet reverence…nothing more…as wisdom is in surrendering to the waiting though agonizing it is…it is a defining engagement that can unveil a deeper reality of humanness no matter what the outcome will be…every single waking moment, as days go by…
